About this event
Join the ABTT in commemorating the usual dates of our annual ABTT Theare Show with a series of online seminars 9th-11th June.
The Theatre Green Book is a project spearheaded by the ABTT, the Theatres Trust and Buro Happold and led by Paddy Dillon. It has brought together theatre-makers and sustainability experts to create a common standard for making theatre sustainably.
The Theatre Green Book will have three volumes:
- Sustainable Productions
- Sustainable Buildings
- Sustainable Operations
Volume 1, Sustainable Productions, was created during lockdown with the help of theatre-makers of all kinds. Available now, theatres are already using it to prepare their reopening shows. Paddy Dillon, Theatre Green Book co-ordinator, and Andrew Wylie, partner at Buro Happold, will explain the process that led to the initiative, take participants through Sustainable Productions, and answer questions.
