New book on Sustainable Event Management (at Deiniol Library)

Meegan Jones. 2010. Sustainable event management: a practical guide. Deiniol Library (Bangor University): GT3405.J66 2010).

Outdoor festivals and events are very popular in the UK and around the world, but can damage the local environment, and leave a trail of rubbish and waste. It’s very important for event organizers to consider how to run their event sustainably, and minimise the impact left on our beautiful planet; so a new book by Meegan Jones called “Sustainable event management: a practical guide” should be very useful for students and academics researching this area, and even more useful for current or prospective event managers.

The book contains photos and examples from real life events, such as Glastonbury Festival, and attempts to inspire event organizers to consider that: “Rather than being hedonistic, resource gulping and garbage producing, events have the potential to be model examples of a harmonious balance between human activity, resource use and minimal environmental impact.” (Jones, 2010, p.3).
