1. Summer of Sustainability - Planning & Auditing

General Production | Planning

What do you need to think about before putting on your festival or event? In this opening chapter you'll hear from the SOS festivals, the Sustainable Living Foundation and the SOS project auditing team (Creative Environment) as they explore issues around measuring and planning to reduce your event's environmental impacts.

The Summer of Sustainability Music Festivals Project (SOS)

The Summer of Sustainability (SOS) is an action learning partnership between government, non-profit organisations and some of Australia's leading music festivals. In the Australian Summer of 2008 and 2009, Sustainability Victoria went out to 5 Victorian music festivals and asked ‘what do you think about sustainability?' What are you already doing? And how did you think you could do it better? Along the way, the partnership grew to include Victoria's Sustainable Living Foundation (SLF) and the new Sustainable Events Planner. This five chapter documentary was developed as part of the SOS project.
