Copenhagen Open Workshops

On Thursday 11th May at 10 am, join an interactive workshop led by passionate sustainability champions to contribute to the creation of a sustainable event industry.

2017 is the United Nations Year of Sustainable Tourism and throughout the year, not for profit, Positive Impact will be leading a campaign to tell the story of the power of events.

This free workshop is part of that campaign and an opportunity for you to:

  • Contribute to the creation of an action plan to support Danish event business to benefit from global sustainability best practice.

 -Provide you with useful and practical examples and ideas which you can implement from today

2- Gain an understanding of the global picture and potential for a sustainable event industry.
