Practical tips for a great event
Host your event in an accessible location that is walkable from most public transport to encourage maximum turnout and discourage event-goers from driving to the event.
If catering your event, try to use sustainable or local food sources as much as possible to minimize waste and carbon footprint.
Minimize waste by encouraging event-goers to bring their own containers and cutlery when organizing events that provide food OR provide edible plates and cutleries instead of disposables
Use paper bags instead of plastic bags, or opt for no bags at all!
Provide recycling bins at your events, and encourage your participants to recycle their waste
Provide compost bins for food waste
Rent/Reuse set-up equipment and decorations instead of buying new ones
Go paperless or reduce unnecessary paper usage as much as possible

Chaque année, la planète entière fait à l'unisson le compte à rebours jusqu'à l'événement Earth Hour et son action emblématique : l'extinction des lumières.
Mais c'est bien plus que cela. C'est un symbole d'unité. C'est un symbole d'espoir. C'est un symbole de puissance dans l'action collective en faveur de la nature.
