A Greener Festival is to offer its environmental assessor training online for the first time via a new partnership with Falmouth University and Cambridge Education Group
By IQ on 23 Aug 2017
A Greener Festival (AGF) , a UK-based nonprofit which helps festivals and venues to adopt more environmentally efficient practices, is making its environmental assessor training available to a global audience for the first time through a new online course.
The two-week course, offered with Falmouth University and Cambridge Education Group’s CEG Digital division, sits within Falmouth’s master of arts (MA) degree in Creative Events Management and is open for student applications ahead of an October start.
Students on the MA will benefit from becoming stage-1 AGF assessors on completion of the course’s sustainable practice module, while non-Falmouth students who opt to take the course “will benefit from enhanced opportunities to study alongside the MA students, and network with these students from all over the world”, says AGF.
“The partnership allows us to extend our training capability globally and meet increasing demand for A Greener Festival training”
Previously, assessor training could only be offered face to face.
“Demand for the training scheme has grown since we introduced it last year, and this partnership will help meet the global need for knowledgeable individuals and teams that can help festivals, events and venues reduce the environmental impact of their offer,” says AGF director Teresa Moore, who joined the company last February.
“Through this collaboration not only are we are able to bring our training to Falmouth’s MA in Creative Events Management students and add real value to the programme, but the partnership allows us to extend our training capability globally through the online platform and meet increasing demand for A Greener Festival training.”
