Feeling positive about the future of sustainable events?

So.... the time has come to get your sustainable event management framework in order and you have no clue where to start? You're in the right place. Welcome to your online, self-paced training in ISO 20121.

OK so we've all been putting this one off for a bit...

... and you might prefer to be in your happy place like me, peering into a skip to see how little contamination there is... but roll up your sleeves and get ready to get into the dirty detail... of ISO 20121.

I'm Meegan Jones and I am very happy to hold your hand on this journey.

Looking for practical sustainable event management training?

That's a different course!

Just a quick note to say that ISO 20121, and this course, assumes that you have a fundamental knowledge in sustainable event management. It does not teach you the 'topic' of sustainability nor how to apply that in action at your event. We of course supply examples for context, but we are not trying to teach you operational techniques. So please do not do this course if you are looking for the fundamentals of how to run a sustainable event. Check out our practical event management courses.

ISO 20121 can seem a little daunting and actually when you read the standard, you might be 'what'?

That's it? Think of the standard as the skeleton and you've got to put the meat on the bones!

Our self-paced online course will lead you through not just how to comply with ISO 20121 requirements, but how to make each and every part work for you and support your success. The course is split into eight modules. They are designed to be taken one after another. The course includes videos, reading materials, and exercises. You will quickly realise that once we get into the detail of the standard, I've grouped the topics into logical order. The standard kind of follow how you'd approach project management of an event, so I've bundled things together to make it easier on your brain!

Don't have a copy of the standard?

You really do need to get one of those.

Buy a copy from your country's standards body or ISO directly.
