Event sustainability guidelines

Every year, Brisbane City Council helps to deliver markets, festivals and events which enrich Brisbane's cultural, and social life, attract visitors, businesses and new residents.

Council has developed guidelines to help event organisers incorporate sustainable principles into their events. Every event is different and each presents different opportunities for improved sustainability. It won’t all be achieved in one go, but every change is a step in the right direction.

It is important to hold a COVID safe event. For current details and more information, contact the State Government of Queensland.
