Last Wednesday (9th of January 2013) the first Green Operations Award winner was revealed at the Festival Awards Europe 2012 ceremony at Eurosonic Noorderslag in Groningen.
The well-deserving winner is the WE LOVE GREEN festival! Well done!
The Award was presented by Holger Jan Schmidt, member of Go Group and Yourope, who initiated this new award category together. Find out more about the underlying idea for the Green Operations Award and the shortlist here.
“From day one festivals were a leading force in this particular field and they truely will be in the future.
We found out how many good, great and excellent practises there are already, because they shared them. But we also learned how much of the way there still is to go.
That’s why I ask you to join us. Try it. Please, share your knowledge and experience and learn what the others are doing!
I think introducing the Green Operations Award to the EFA is a great opportunity for us and it is a perfect match that allows us to bring our expertise to this wonderful event.”
(quoted from the awarding speech)
