In Pursuit of a Sustainable Event: The Case of the 2012 Hay Festival

Dr Andrea Collins (Cardiff School of Planning and Geography) and Dr Crispin Cooper (Sustainable Places Research Institute) have published the results from an 'ecological footprint' study of the Hay Literature Festival, held in Hay-on-Wye, Wales. The findings were presented at this year's Hay Festival as part of the Cardiff University Lecture series, which is organised by the University's Community Engagement Team.

The Executive Summary provides a summary of the key research findings, and reports on scenarios which could reduce visitors transport footprint at future festivals.
