This month our focus at Positive Impact is food waste! We believe this is a really important area in terms of both climate change and sustainability. By targeting food waste and food miles you can save money, have a positive impact on the local community, and also reduce your impact on the environment. In this way the choices we make about food contribute to economic, social and environmental sustainability. Also, check out our interview with Selina Juul below!
The UN have named 2017 as the Year of Sustainable Tourisim for Development, making this an exciting year when the focus of not only the tourism industry, but all other sectors, will be on sustainability. This month we'll be exploring exactly what this Year of Sustainable Tourism means for the event industry.
The power of the event industry is vast and its possibilities are endless, meaning there are an array of ways in which the event industry can be viewed and explored. This month, we will be exploring how events can create equal working opportunities and lead to sustainable economic growth.
Events have an opportunitiy to leave a lasting legacy. When we say legacy, we don't mean having a positive impact on just the community and destination involved with the event, but it has the power to inspire other events accross the globe too.
