The next intake of A Greener Festival (AGF)’s assessor training courses are fast approaching, with upcoming dates at Manchester Metropolitan University on 9 and 10 April.

The course offers graduates a rapid route into environmental operations and will equip them with the knowledge and tools needed to undertake thorough assessments of a wide range of indoor and outdoor events.

Topics covered include:

  • Legal framework and policy
  • Local impacts and risks
  • Sustainable procurements
  • Travel and transport
  • Event power
  • Solid waste and recycling
  • Water usage, waste waster and sewage
  • Behaviour and communication

According to AGF, the course is suitable for event and festival organisers who wish to improve the environmental integrity of their event; those training to work in event management; anyone whose remit includes the environmental impact of the events they organise; those wishing to update their professional skills; those already working in or actively involved in event sustainability; those working in events-related businesses such as event suppliers; anyone who is passionate about preserving the environment and limiting the environmental damage around events; and anyone wishing to join the A Greener Festival assessment team.

Upon successful completion of the course, graduates will receive an internationally recognised award, and will be able to undertake audits on behalf of A Greener Festival under the supervision of a senior assessor.
