What a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth DayAscendance Sustainable Events, Miami’s first sustainable event consulting company, is giving away a free, 15-page guide covering major changes the music industry can make to become more eco-friendly. The comprehensive guide provides organizers the necessary tools they need to start re-strategizing their environmental and community impacts. 

One positive notion that has arisen from the COVID-19 pandemic is the urge to think globally. Our actions can have a direct effect on the rest of society, and this rings especially true for massive festivals that leave a negative environmental footprint once the smoke has cleared. 

“Our planet is having the best rest it has ever received from human activity in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Vivian Belzaguy, founder of Ascendance Sustainable Events in a press statement. “While that’s no cause for celebration, it is a wake-up call for all of us - including event organizers - to think about how we can not only step lightly back onto the planet when this is over, but grow new awareness and action around sustainability. While all events will have the ability to do this when they return, I believe that music events, in particular, have a superpower for creating positive influence.”
