Midem Green World Awards to take place in January

Published: 2008-01-09
The first Midem Green World Awards will be presented to individuals who have promoted and produced musical events that advocate the preservation of the environment.

Organized by Midem, a music industry international trade show, the Green World Awards will take place at the end of this month in Cannes, France. The first prizes will be awarded to the organizers of Live Earth, the Roskilde Festival (Denmark), and the Paléo Festival Nyon (Switzerland).

Both the Swiss and Danish festivals are annual musical events that take place in July and are environmentally-friendly (Paléo Festival Nyon gets its sources of energy from water and wind while Roskilde uses recyclable mugs for drinking). The first series of Live Earth concerts also took place around the world in July and not only utilized both 'green power' and cups that were biodegradable, but also generated carbon offsets for celebrity transportation.
