Environment 2.0 - a festival for a better planet

ENVIRONMENT 2.0 a Futuresonic 2007 festival special feature.

Futuresonic is taking steps to reduce the environmental impact of the festival, starting with a pioneering study of the carbon footprint of the Futuresonic 2007 festival, undertaken in collaboration with the Manchester-based Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and Creative Concern, and a series of projects which highlight social and environmental impact of future arts and technologies.

The issues raised by this will be explored under the banner of ENVIRONMENT 2.0 within the SOCIAL TECHNOLOGIES SUMMIT, the main conference strand of the Futuresonic festival.
