More About Native Events

Native Events was set up In 2017 as a response to the lack of sustainable solutions available to the events and cultural sector in Ireland. The founders quickly gathered a dynamic team of smart, hard-working and driven individuals to accompany them on their journey. As the environmental movement gathers pace, they work with an expanding community of partners in the sector including events, festivals and cultural organisations but also with the wider network of industry suppliers, ensuring a systems-wide transition to sustainability and regeneration.

At ADE Green in Amsterdam in 2019, Native Events became a co-signatory with Body&Soul to the Green Deal for Circular Festivals. This is an initiative of the Dutch Ministry for Infrastructure and the Environment, with 16 other international pioneering festivals, aiming to become circular by 2025. 

The health crisis in 2020 gave the team the opportunity to pause, reflect and gain deeper learning in the application of resilience and systems-thinking. Training has been undertaken with Julie's Bicycle, the Ellen McArthur Foundation, H3 University and Common Purpose to embed the necessary skills in using tools and methodologies for understanding and reporting on environmental progress and to facilitate transformational change ensuring a systems-wide transition to sustainability and regeneration.
