SeeMe Music Conference In Sofia hosted the EE MUSIC Initiative Launch & Festival Training on September 24th-25th

A visible change from “what is green’’ to “let’s do it’’ happened in Bulgaria

This is how the co-founder of the EE MUSIC Jacob Bilabel assessed the events, held in Bulgaria, couple of months ago. He started the action with an emotional speech and presentation during the first conference day of SeeMe.

Music industry agents, artists, media, city governance representatives where completely impressed of the idea of energy savings in the music events organisation. “I have the very positive feeling that a lot happened in Bulgaria from green music point of view in the past three years. Last time I attended SeeMe in 2011 and I talked about green music, people were not sure what it is about. And now I was contacted by a lot of professionals from the industry, asking what exactly they can do as to join the EE MUSIC initiative. So in three years a visible change from “what is green’’ to “let’s do it’’ happened in Bulgaria. And there are already organizations that make steps in this direction!”
