To-do-list for organising a sustainable event in Lyon

By their nature, events are ephemeral. However, making them more sustainable contributes to the development of our organisations and the strengthening of their values. The specifications drawn up for an event reflect the various individual activities impacting our environment. The team of Lyon Convention Bureau is on hand to assist you with this approach and has created this To-Do List, which we hope you will find useful when organising your sustainable events.
