Your opportunity to provide feedback

The City of Adelaide is developing Sustainable Event Guidelines that outline practical suggestions on actions that deliver more environmentally sustainable event experiences. The guidelines have been drafted with input from event organisers and industry bodies through two workshops. We are seeking feedback from event organisers and key industry bodies on the draft guidelines to ensure that they strike the right balance of being practical and ambitious.

    11 months ago

    One of the actions in the City of Adelaide’s Strategic Plan 2016-2020 is to develop clear guidelines for event organisers of events on Council-operated areas, to achieve zero-waste and carbon neutrality.

    Events play an enormous role in Adelaide’s liveability and ongoing prosperity, with a year-round calendar of events activity, celebrating creativity and the arts in all their forms.

    The City of Adelaide has a commitment to be an international leader in environmental change and protecting the city’s natural environment, including the Park Lands.
