As we return to in-person events, it’s time to take a new look at how sustainability can be woven into our meeting programs. Leaders from the Event Industry Council’s Centre for Sustainability and Social Impact will discuss how the events industry can inspire and advance sustainability and social impact not only in the way we operate, but also through our ability to inspire action. Join us to reimagine the possibilities of a journey that embraces equity, resilience, circularity, and climate action for a more prosperous society. 

Learning Outcomes: 

  • Learn about EIC's Principles for Recovery, and how we can intentionally design sustainability and social impact into all aspects of the events industry.
  • Understand the Sustainable Development Goals and how approaches to sustainability in events are helping to build ambition and capacity. 
  • Learn about how event organizers and suppliers are reimagining their events, products, and services in support of sustainability and social impact.
