Nothing sus about sustainability at Australia’s biggest arts festival

Sustainability has become a forefront priority for the upcoming mad March season with our much-loved Adelaide Fringe Festival pledging their obligation to the cause.  

The Fringe has just recognised United Nations Day by highlighting their commitment to meeting the UN Global Sustainability goals and their ongoing pledge to generate positive social and environmental change.

As the first festival in Adelaide to do so, their Sustainability Action Plan puts into action very real and tangible ways of meeting the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that countries around the world must act upon in global partnership.

These goals recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

Adelaide Fringe has identified seven of the Global Goals it will work to implement from now through to 2030: Good Health and Well-being, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Reduced Inequalities, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action, and Partnerships to Achieve Goals.
