Green Orchestras Guide

Harp strings

Published in 2011, this practical and basic guide for orchestras, commissioned by ABO and Orchestras Live and authored by Julie’s Bicycle, addresses the environmental impacts of the work they do: from office-based work to marketing and rehearsals.

The guide has also been expanded into a wider range of online resources, and has informed the development of the Green Orchestras Charter. The Charter includes recommendations, top tips and resources for Orchestras, their General and Tour Management, Promoters and Agents on how to reduce their environmental impacts.

The Green Orchestras Guide was developed by Julie’s Bicycle at the request of the UK orchestral sectoral, with funding from Arts Council England, British Council and Orchestras Live.
