Festival Vision: 2025 UK Event Industry Green Survey 2018
In 2015, Powerful Thinking, with the AIF and AFO conducted The Green Manifesto survey of UK Festivals, asking what sustainability practices festivals have in place and about their aspirations and priorities. The information significantly contributed to the Show Must Go On report (2015) and the launch of Festival Vision: 2025, a shared vision for a sustainable festival industry. In 2016 and 2017 the survey was repeated to track progress and now three years on, with 75 UK festivals having taken the Festival Vision: 2025 pledge, we want to find out, and report back, how we are doing as an industry and identify what more we can do to support positive changes.

Please take a moment to complete this survey — all participants will be entered into a raffle to win a free delegate place for the Green Events & Innovations Conference on Tuesday 5th March 2019 at the ILMC.

Please complete the survey by 21st December. The winner will be announced in January 2019.
