Event description


Julie's Bicycle and Denmark EE MUSIC Ambassador Huset-KBH, one of Copenhagen'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.


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:

15:15 - Introduction to EE MUSIC and current cultural & environmental context; drivers for change; introductions from those in the room -- (Chiara Badiali, Julie’s Bicycle)

15:25 - How to save energy in the operations of a venue: key energy use hot-spots, practical actions, main opportunities for savings, pros/cons of LED stage lighting; including case studies from across Europe and Q&A -- (Chiara Badiali, Julie’s Bicycle)


16:45 - The value of data and the EE MUSIC IG Tools: sector specific carbon calculators that allow you to compare your energy use per m2 to the average benchmark and track your energy use over time associated to the number of performances hosted, used by over 2000 creative organisations worldwide (Chiara Badiali, Julie's Bicycle)

17:15 - What's in it for you? Discussion and sketching out an energy action plan for participating venues (or an action plan for you/your organisation for everyone not associated to a venue), next steps. (Everyone)

17:45 - BREAK

18:00 - Discussion / Q&A / Networking / Drinks

Creating the conditions for change: environmental sustainability in the cultural and creative sector across Europe; collaborations between suppliers, policymakers and the music industry; integrating environmental sustainability into discussions on the value of cultural space(s); finding a common narrative in environmental/social/financial sustainability; creating the conditions for change in Denmark; anything else!

19:00 - ENDS

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

EE MUSIC aims to change the music event industry relates to energy, kick-starting a movement to work better and more efficiently, and building a more resilient sector able to respond to the changing world we are finding ourselves in. It is the largest energy awareness campaign in the history of the European music event industry, holding events on better energy use in 27 European countries.

Please note: we are also running a workshop for energy / environmental sustainability consultants interested in working with the music event industry, performance art venues and outdoor events on the 16 November 14:30-17:30. Attendance is free, register here.

Organiser Julie's Bicycle

Organiser of EE MUSIC Workshop and Evening Reception, Copenhagen, Denmark

Julie’s Bicycle’s vision is a creative community powering action on climate change.

Julie’s Bicycle is a London based charity that supports the creative community to act on climate change and environmental sustainability. We believe that the creative community is uniquely placed to transform the conversation around climate change and translate it into action.

We provide the creative community with the skills to act, using their creativity to influence one another, audiences and the wider movement. We run a rich programme of events, free resources and public speaking engagements, which contribute to national and international climate change policy development.

Julie’s Bicycle supports the Paris Agreement goal to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius by focusing on energy, the major source of carbon emissions for the cultural sector. More than 2,000 companies use the Creative Industry Green Tools, our suite of carbon calculators, and our certification scheme, Creative Green, is the recognised benchmark for sustainability achievement within the creative industries.

We have a deep engagement with the arts and cultural sector, working with organisations and independent professionals across the UK and internationally to embed environmental sustainability into their operations, creative work and business practice.
