How We Gather Matters is an important book, because not many cover this huge industry that never gets advice for sustainability. ‘Event planning’ is a massive income for England and beyond, yet causes massive emissions too. If you run a business that hosts events for business or any occasion, this book can tell you how to be more green.
The modern events industry is in need of change. Learn how to find and serve sustainable ethical food and flowers, and collaborate effectively with others. From finding local producers and artisans to engaging participants to change their ways with love, you’ll also learn how to avoid waste and harmful items (releasing balloons and fire lanterns is lethal to wildlife) and lead a shift to zero emission celebrations.
Packed with stories and case studies from major festivals around the world, this is required reading for anyone in the events industry. Leor Rotchild is a pioneer in the sustainable events industry and founder of DIG (Do It Green) which supports major festivals and events. He is also Executive Director of Canadian Business for Social Responsibility.
