The seventh Event Greening Forum Master Class and Conference will be following the theme, “Imagining a Different Future”

It could could not come at a better time, as the 7.7 billion people on our planet begin to accept that climate change is a reality.

However, climate change does not mean our fate will be a dystopian disaster. Instead, we can take action and steer our future in a brighter direction.

These two events are a unique opportunity for the events industry to come together and start imagining what that future can, and should, look like.

Be a part of the solution, and in the process, ensure you have the skills to succeed in this new economy.

The Master Class

This year’s EGF Master Class will be run by Lorraine Jenks, a sustainability facilitator, greening specialist and climate change leader.

“With incidences of extreme weather making headline news, it is clear that climate change is here. We are not ready. The impact on all aspects of our lifestyles, tourism, hospitality and the events industry in Africa will be, and already is, profound.

“Based on research in Africa, I will share actual climate disruptions experienced by people on the ground and offer solutions, preparedness, special training, adaptions and some of their tips for all aspects of the events industry. My presentation has no bewildering graphs and statistics but rather facts, solutions, advice and practical tips – factors attendees may not even have thought of – gleaned from those who have already been there.”

~ Lorraine Jenks
