Green Music BBQ Registration

Green Music BBQ

Thursday, 21 June 2012, 18 :30 – 22:00, c/o pop,  Stadtgarten / Al Bosco, Cologne, Germany

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. Adjustments need to be made in all areas of life. Through exemplary actions, relevant actors can function as role models for the implementation of vital climate-protection measures. The music and entertainment industry has a unique opportunity – through positive examples and practical solutions – to guide society towards a more climate-friendly future.

First experiences show that the music industry can also benefit from this itself.

Within the pilot project Green Club Index (GCI) 6 Clubs in North Rhine-Westphalia managed to lower their electricity consumption tremendously (up to 50%) with the help of the Green Music Initiative (GMI) and the EnergyAgency.NRW. This helped not only to reduce the environmental impact of the clubs but also to realize big cost savings. Currently a second GCI Project was set up in the Rhein-Main area and several more regional projects are about to start within the next months. (Area of Mannheim, Munich, Hamburg, Switzerland and Norway). Furthermore GMI and the EnergyAgency.NRW are in the process of developing a green club label and a green club training workshop for energy consultants.

We would like to share this experience and explore with you the potential such a strategy has and how it can be implemented. Selected high-ranking representatives from music, politics, science, media and environmental associations will discuss how innovative approaches in the music industry can lead to concrete results in the reduction of carbon emissions.

The Networking Event gives the participants a special oportunity to network in a relaxed atmosphere. Three input statements will offer a variety of topics for rich and lively discussions.

With contributions by

Jacob Bilabel | Founder, Green Music Initiative
Lothar Schneider | Managing Director, EnergyAgency.NRW
Norbert Oberhaus | Managing Director, c/o pop
