A Case Study: Green Space: Dark Skies Shining the Spotlight on Outdoor Event Sustainability

Leading outdoor arts organisations Walk the Plank, were at the helm of Green Space, Dark Skies, one of ten projects commissioned as part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK a ground-breaking UK-wide celebration of creativity in 2022, designed to celebrate science, technology, engineering, the arts and maths.

Walk the Plank had four core sustainability targets for the event – which saw thousands of people, from all paths in life, to experience beautiful landscapes across the UK at dusk, between April and September 2022 – which were as follows:

  • 100% renewable energy usage
  • Zero-waste policy on resource usage
  • Limit disposable and single-use plastics
  • Follow the waste hierarchy

In the informative video below, Rebecca Whitman, a freelance consultant and the event’s Sustainability Manager tells TRACE Customer Success Manager Kate Kieran, how the organisation utilised TRACE to help meet the above and also put them on the path to win the Best Sustainability award at the National Outdoor Events Association in the same year.
