Green Folk

Our Environmental Policy

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.

Mission Statement

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.
