Teresa Moore has been named a director of A Greener Festival.
Moore, formerly of Bucks New University, joins Ben Challis, Claire O’Neill, Luke Westbury, Helen Innes and Amie Green on the board of the London-based nonprofit, which helps festivals around the world to adopt more environmentally efficient practices.
A Greener Festival (AGF) turns 10 this year and recently announced the relaunch of its long-running Greener Festival Awards.
“Having worked on many projects with the team at A Greener Festival over the years, as well as on the Green Events and Innovations Conference since its inception in 2008, I couldn’t be more delighted to join the team on a more permanent basis,” says Moore.

“I had recently decided to leave my post as head of music and events at Bucks New University after 16 years, and what better way to start the next phase of my life than to devote more of my time and energy to A Greener Festival and a cause close to my heart.”
O’Neill adds: “We are extremely happy to be announcing this very natural addition to our directorship. Teresa will bring her considerable training and research experience to the team, which will be a great asset to our future plans.”
Moore’s new position, and upcoming activities for AGF, will be formally announced at the 2016 Green Events and Innovations Conference (GEI) on 3 March at Royal Garden Hotel (the day before ILMC), joined by festivals We Love Green, Glastonbury, Shambala, Pohoda, Fuji Rock, Byron Bay BluesFest, Lollapolooza Berlin and more.
