As the face of the organisation, your events or activities represent the organisation and brand. Implementing green practices can be difficult or confusing especially if one is unsure how to start.
We can help to integrate event sustainability practices or build capacity through training in a way that enhances your brand, identify blind spots, and carried out in a way that also reduces waste and cost.
We touch base initially to know your project and requirements. This gives us an understanding of the scope of work and sets the context of the project.
Based on your requirements and needs, we will work out some preliminary ideas and suggested solutions. Depending on what you need, we can help you get started on an ad hoc basis, or improve the event in a way that creates long term impact.
After obtaining your inputs, we will work to execute the ideas, providing updates via check-ins so that your project is on time and on budget.
At the end of the event, we will provide an overall update on the outcomes of the project, including areas of improvement. If you are looking to improve this on a regular basis, we will also provide suggested parameters so that you can continue to measure your impact in an objective manner.
I approached Green Nudge to hold an introductory workshop for participating arts organisations interested in making the move towards creating sustainable art events. Throughout the collaboration, both Li Seng, Gena, and their colleagues from Green Nudge were always attentive and understanding, and their willingness and dedication to make the workshop generative for participants and the industry is not only heard but felt. Their services are clearly bespoke and catered towards ensuring that the content and output of their workshop are aligned with industry capacities and limitations. Overall, their workshop sessions were fruitful in helping us in the arts and culture scene and creative industries understand what we can do to make sustainable art events, and how we can further empower our peers to go hand-in-hand with us to take this step together.
Shireen, Organiser of the Can or Cannot: Making Sustainable Art Events the Norm Workshop,
The Arts House, May - Jun 2021
Our largest event yet, with a whopping 51,000 participants – small wonder that we ended up with 23 bins of plastic bottles and cans, salvaged 1,300 over towels and a haul of 525.5kg of banana peels at the end of the event! Our army of volunteers worked tirelessly both day and night encouraging the participants to keep the running routes clean and to remind them to dispose of their trash in the proper bins.
We’re proud that we made this run for a good cause even more worthy by educating participants on responsible waste disposal. With the help of passionate young volunteers from Victoria Junior College, we collected almost 110kg of fruit peel and reached out to 7,000 participants.
Our volunteers collected waste, repurposed towels, and rescued excess food to be donated to community centers. Altogether, we collected a massive 388kg of banana peels to be used as compost in community gardens – we’re certain that the crops grew very well for the next few months!
