Summary

Climate change is one of the single most important global environmental issues facing the world today and there is a need for all sectors to adopt environmental policies. The growing event industry is no exception. Anyone involved in organising and managing Events will have to understand the relationship between events and the environment, the positive and negative effects of events on the environment to implement more sustainable management practices. This is the first book to provide a through exploration of the multi #xE2;#xAC;#x1C; dimensional relationships between events and the environment. It achieves this by reviewing how the events industry uses the environment as a resource, critically evaluates the positive and negative impacts of events on the environment from a variety of scales whilst considering the role of environmental legislation. It then offers useful insights into how sustainable measurement practices can be implemented into the planning and managing of an event and looks at the issues surrounding the event/environment relationships in the future. Case Studies are integrated throughout to help show this relationship and ways of incorporating environmental policy into planning and managing. To encourage reflection on main themes address and critical thinking discussion questions and links to further reading are included in each chapter. This book is essential reading for students of Events Management.
