The Festival Vision: 2025 Crowdfunder target has been raised to £35,000 after hitting its original £25,000 target.
The crowdfunding campaign has been raised in just three weeks with support from event professionals, companies and festivals.
The Festival Vision: 2025 crowdfunding campaign has been launched by not-for-profit group Powerful Thinking, to support the UK live events industry in providing leadership action on climate change.
The additional £10,000 will fund active support for events. The extension to keep the campaign open until July 17 will provide an opportunity for more people in the industry to be part of the project.
Reaching the £25,000 goal means that Powerful Thinking will be launching an up-to-date Show Must Go On report.
The report will support the UK festival industry to reduce CO2 emissions by 50 per cent by 2025 with Vision: 2025 in the key areas of energy, resource management, water, food and drink, travel and transport and governance.
Rachel Baker, GL events UK group marketing manager, says: “We believe that there’s immense value in doing better, both as a company and as an industry.
“That’s why we were so keen to support the Festival Vision: 2025 campaign.”
