Designing-in socially responsible practices and event elements builds community and social license.
Events can directly and purposefully enhance social sustainability in the context of the community that hosts them, the attendees that enjoy the event, and the destination at large.
The hope is positive social benefits endure, and transform into enduring social legacies of the event.
Community events can build to community pride and a sense of localness. They contribute to the continuity of local culture and build networks and connectivity. They can connect people in the community with each other, and with their heritage and sense of place.
Operating a socially responsibility event can be achieved through your purchasing and production decisions, through the event programming and experience, the way you interact with participants, and your general standing in society.
