A Greener Future (AGF) and Falmouth University have opened enrolment to their next sustainable event course.

The two-week online course, which commences on June 5, is designed to equip students with all the skills and knowledge of environmental operations and sustainability at events and enables those who pass to undertake and carry out environmental assessments for a wide range of different events and venues worldwide on behalf of AGF.

The course, which is Stage 1 of AGF’s assessor training, provides the opportunity to move onto Stage 2 to focus on the practical application of the knowledge and skills to become a trained  A Greener Future Assessor, able to undertake environmental assessment of events, festivals and venues worldwide on their behalf.

An AGF spokesperson said: “Students will learn and understand the key operational issues of events which create an environmental and social impact as well as issues to do with communication and behaviour change legislation and self-regulation.  The training is designed to develop knowledge and skills needed to undertake environmental assessments.”

Successful completion of the two-week intensive online course is valid for a period of three years, after which students will need to renew their training.

The course is designed to train auditors to complete assessments at events, festivals and venues on behalf of the AGF certifications, such as “A Greener Festival”, “Greener Arena” and “Greener Event” certifications.

The spokesperson added: “The training is also relevant for those who want to work in event sustainability or improve understanding, including event organisers, local authorities, suppliers, academics and researchers as well as those who are passionate about developing their skills in event sustainability.”
