Limmud Festival 2023 aims to be a Net Zero event!
Following on from COP28 in November, Limmud Festival in December will be the first Jewish event to be aligned with the UK’s Net Zero Strategy as part of Limmud’s belief in honouring the past, celebrating the present and preserving the future of not just Jewish life and learning, but also the environment and world in which we all live.
The Limmud Festival 2023 team, utilising a carbon calculator tool, have examined all the ways in which Festival can achieve the Net Zero goal and have begun the process of creating long term strategies for future teams to develop the environmental sustainability of Limmud Festival.
The team have taken into consideration the Hilton Metropole’s unique carbon report calculated for our event, set up costs, transport costs and any essential printing costs. We have incorporated the carbon off-setting costs into our Festival pricing, at £5 per person, to ensure we can achieve our Net Zero goal.
As Jews, we have a responsibility to ensure we actively preserve our environment for future generations to come and together we will achieve this goal!
At Festival itself, we will have events and workshops in our new ‘climate track’ which will discuss further ways to act now and prevent a climate crisis.
The Hilton hotel has community partnerships with a number of key local organisations including:
The Canal & River Trust – Let us know if you’d like to volunteer to clean up a local Birmingham canal during Festival!
Event Cycle – taking unwanted event waste and giving it a second life.
We’d love to hear your ideas on how to make Festival more sustainable. For more detailed information, to share your ideas or to see a copy of the Hilton’s carbon report for Festival, please feel free to email email@example.com
