Henry Victor Smale

Brisbane, Australia

Sustainability Manager and Consultant

‚ÄčDetails of experience: 

Henry works in event sustainability because he has seen the negative impacts events can have, and he has seen just how good conscious event practice can be.

He began volunteering at festivals almost 10 years ago in waste management, and 9 years later he has started his own dedicated event sustainability business.

Henry has years of experience working site builds, small to very large scale events, council events to massive multi-day festivals, and has had the opportunity to try new & radical forms of event sustainability.

Himself and his team have gone to huge lengths to save resources from landfill, introduce complex reusable systems for food traders, introduce alternative power sources and challenge patrons to be more sustainable event-goers.
