Julie's Bicycle and Denmark EE MUSIC Ambassador Huset-KBH, one of Copnehagen's largest cultural centres, are co-hosting a free EE MUSIC Workshop followed by a free EE MUSIC evening event and reception at Huset on the 17 November. 

Rising energy costs and an increased interest in environmental sustainability is making sustainable energy management a growing topic of importance in the music event production industry, but there is frequently a knowledge barrier preventing effective action. We want to scale up existing good practice and skills, sharing the experience and learning from different parts of Europe about how to best address this in a way that balances environmental, financial, and social considerations.

EE MUSIC WORKSHOP 15:15 - 17:45

The workshop in Denmark is for all interested venue managers, heads of operations, production professionals and anyone else with an interest in energy management in the music event industry. It will be an informal and practical workshop day covering:

• Practical and sector-specific advice on making energy savings (and often, money savings!) in clubs and venues.
• Best practice case studies on energy management and use of renewable energy by venues from across Europe.
• How to use the EE MUSIC IG Tools, which are carbon calculators designed specifically for the creative industries to help venues and festivals monitor their environmental impacts and energy use on a monthly or yearly basis. The Tools have been adapted from the Julie's Bicycle Creative IG Tools, which are already being used by over 2000 arts and creative organisations in the UK and worldwide.
• Discussion between venues, technical and production professionals, and promoters on finding new ways of working that promote energy efficiency in the music event production industry - and an honest look at the challenges and barriers we're faced with when addressing environmental sustainability, and how we can start to overcome them. 

The full agenda will be published soon. Guest speakers will include Chiara Badiali of Julie’s Bicycle, with more to be confirmed. Attendance is free, but registration is requested. Lunch will be provided.

The Workshop will be followed by an evening event and reception to help create a top-level industry conversation about energy efficiency and the future of energy in music event production in Denmark. The evening will feature food, drinks, presentations, discussion, and networking. We invite anyone working in the music event industry in Denmark to join us, as well as local authority representatives, policymakers, energy professionals, students, and anyone else who might be interested! We'll discuss how successful environmental sustainablity initiatives have been established in other countries, what has or hasn't worked in Denmark, and also leave plenty of time for everyone to get to know each other and form new connections.

Full programme TBC. Attendance is free, but registration is requested. Food and drinks will be provided.
