At some point every planner will need to evaluate the green practices of their events. There’s been no shortage of dialogue on this topic, yet much of it is confusing, and often inaccurate. This class will start by helping define the landscape and all the key terms that are often misused in the Green Meetings Industry. We’ll focus on the key functional areas of each event, as defined by the GMIC (Green Meetings Industry Council) and review a range of tips and best practices within each category, as well as understand the difference between true green tactics and green washing.
