Terms & Conditions for Assessors
All Environmental Assessors for A Greener Festival (AGF) need to complete a formal training programme at least once every three years so they can fully participate in evaluating festivals that take part in the A Greener Festival Award scheme and The Greener Event Award scheme.
The opportunity to complete an assessment is dependent upon the quantity and location of events applying for the Awards scheme in any twelve (12) month period. These numbers can vary and every attempt is made to match a festival or event with a suitable Assessor. This is often decided by the location of the event and that of the Assessor in order to minimise travel emissions and costs.
The training is valid for the A Greener Festival Awards Scheme for 3 years from the date you complete this course. Whilst you are welcome to take the training again before this time, you do not have to. However, after 3 years you will need to renew your training with A Greener Festival if you wish to continue as an Assessor.
