We are here to inspire you to see that it is possible to make sustainability a part of your everyday activities, whether you are responsible for a sporting or cultural event.

Who are we?
What we do?
With the help of workshops and seminars we will guide your organization towards making the green shift and take an active part in the development for a better future today. The practical approach, combined with new knowledge, will give understanding, insight and motivation to minimize the environmental, social and economic impacts of the event, and lead to measurable and effective results in areas like recycling and waste management, green procurement, healthy and organic food consumption, smarter transport solutions, energy usage and visual pollution, as well as economic benefits.
We will also help you in connecting with the right sponsors that share the same values as you and are willing to actively participate in solving the challenges and reach the event’s goal. Together you can make sustainable values shine through the whole event as part of fun activities and stands, and inspire your audience to make sustainable choices.
