Imex shares  two replays from EduMonday’s „sustainability superheroes“. In their 30 minute sessions Guy Bigwood, Chief Changemaker & Managing Director, Global Destination Sustainability Movement, and Mariella McIlwraith, VP Sustainability and Industry Advancement, Events Industry Council, show ways to a  regenerative events industry. They believe we have the collective capacity to make a difference to our planet’s health by designing regenerative events that support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

Guy Bigwood says: “We need to rethink, redesign and regenerate our approach to events. We need to take this opportunity to design a better future.” Learn from nature about thriving systems; the benefits of collaboration, community outreach and reducing food waste. Viewing time is 34 mins.

Emma Blake from Imex PR team takes a deeper dive into this session in her blog.

Mariella McIlwraith discusses Events as accelerators for the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Mary Rogers, IMEX Sales Manager (and member of our Sustainability Squad), attended this session and discovered the key UN SDGs the business events community can support through live, hybrid and virtual events. Plus, inspiring examples of how others are supporting the goals. Viewing time is 30 mins.
