Abstract

To encourage greater awareness of responsible events, a group of final year Events Management students based in a UK Higher Education institution researched a range of contemporary issues affecting the events industry. The results were presented as an interactive online blog to facilitate an exchange of knowledge with peers and event professionals. Although limitations to the approach are identified and discussed, the evidence suggests that this is an effective learning strategy that encourages debate beyond the university classroom and enables a greater awareness of the need to create and manage events responsibly.
