To address the environmental impact of the organization, events, and programs, FAI launched the Green Folk program in 2016. Implementing a variety of strategic actions to significantly reduce the footprint of the five-day conference, FAI successfully diverted 5.9 tons of waste from the landfill to recycling and compost stations.
Actions taken include:
These efforts were supported by our partners Bridging the Gap, Mid-America Regional Council Solid Waste Management District, and the Westin Crown Center Hotel.
The mission of Folk Alliance International is to nurture, engage, and empower the international folk music community - traditional and contemporary, amateur and professional - through education, advocacy and performance.
