Talk: Live Music and the Climate Emergency

Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from human activities is one of the greatest challenges we face. Live music, like every other industry, needs to find new ways to operate in response to this challenge. This means changing the way bands tour, how music venues use and source energy, and how audiences travel for shows. This talk will focus on what measures can be taken to reduce carbon emissions from live music in response to the urgent need for global decarbonisation.
