The event was an opportunity for members of the Green Theatre Network to meet up,Â share progress, discuss issues and find new ways to improve sustainableÂ practices within theatres. The morning consisted of discussions and updates,Â particularly from members of the network who gave brief summaries on theirÂ latest sustainability initiatives. There were also discussions on the future ofÂ greening theatre and what we can ideally achieve by 2025.
The variety in projects ranged from new LED lighting techniques, introducing GreenÂ Riders into contracts, energy monitoring and measuring, Climate Week 2012Â progress and more. It was inspiring and exciting to see how each theatre orÂ company is using different initiatives to be more sustainable.
The event was organised by Julieâ€™s Bicycle, anÂ organisation working to integrate sustainability into the arts.
