GO Group was initiated by Bucks University (Teresa Moore), Green Music Initiative (Jaciob Bilabel), GreenEvents Conference (Holger Jan Schmidt) and Yourope (Christoph Huber / The European Festival Association) at the first GreenEvents Conference end of 2010. Since then it evolved into a unique platform for exchange of ideas and best practises on an international basis. Workshops, conference contributions and initiative support in almost all parts of Europe make GO Group the strongest sustainability related open network in Europe today.
