ESNS acknowledges the urgency of the climate crisis and aims to trailblaze the music industry towards a sustainable future. “ESNS is a platform for sharing knowledge and skills, where we aspire to grow awareness and inspire action,” affirms Ruud Berends, Head of ESNS Conference. Each year, the programme is curated to address all the most urgent sustainable topics – which covers everything from climate justice, innovation, circularity and the resilience of the industry. “We’ve addressed sustainability for years, but feel a growing urgency to underline our own action. We’re changing that now.” Green Touring Support, funded by the Eco Solidarity Tax, is testament to that.
