Meet course creator, Meegan Jones

Meegan is a seasoned event professional and pioneer in event sustainability practice. 

Meegan realised that her 20+ years of valuable learning needed to be shared with others as so few people were considering a sustainable approach to event production. She made the decision to document her processes.

All culminating in the writing of what is now known as the industry bible, her book Sustainable Event Management: A Practical Guide. First published in 2009, and now in its third edition, Meegan draws on the lessons learned from hundreds of events over two decades and brings them to life in the Institute for Sustainable Events online training.


To prepare for a year of action in 2024, the Sustainable Event Quick Start course is yours for only €280
