Just in time for summer festival season and Earth Day, the new book Sustainable Event Management: A Practical Guide is now available. Written by industry leader Meegan Jones (sustainability coordinator for Festival Republic - Reading, Leeds, Latitude & Glastonbury Festivals and sustainability event consultant for many other events worldwide), Sustainable Event Management is a practical, step-by-step guide that takes the reader through all the key aspects of how to understand and manage the impacts of events of any type and scale most places in the world.

The product of tried-and-tested methods used across the event industry, coverage includes an overview of sustainable event management and detailed discussion of energy, zero emissions options, carbon management, transport, water, waste management and reduction, procurement and supply chains as well as communications and marketing.

Numerous examples and case studies from across the world are integrated throughout to illustrate key points including how to avoid common pitfalls. Festivals profiled and their systems revealed include the iconic and incredibly green Boom Festival in Portugal, desert-based Burning Man in Nevada USA, grandmother green event Glastonbury Festival, UK rock icons Reading & Leeds Festivals and the Danish over-achiever Roskilde Festival.

Case studies and examples also come from leading Australian events including Peats Ridge Festival, Big Day Out, Splendour in the Grass, Meredith Music Festival, Falls Festival, Southbound and the iconic Woodford Folk Festival. From the USA green ground is covered by ROTHBURY, Coachella, and Bonnaroo festivals, along with the recent US Democratic Convention.

This is the indispensable one-stop guide for facility and event organizers, managers and professionals, and event management students who want to adjust their thinking and planning decisions toward sustainability and who need a powerful, easy to use collection of tools to deliver their events sustainably.

"Finally, a book that gathers all the knowledge about running a sustainable event and presents it in one easy to understand, well thought out format. Possibly one of the most important books written on event management this decade, a must have for organisers of events everywhere"
Matt Grant, Festival & Creative Director, Peats Ridge Festival
"I had already been committed to bringing about a change in the perception of festival-goers towards their impact upon the environment, Meegan successfully made that change happen. Meegan got me to where I wanted but much further and this book explains in a wonderful explanatory manner how every event can move towards our common goal. Sustainability!"
Melvin Benn, Director, Festival Republic UK
