Steps to take before the event
Step 1: (Prepare) Download the Ambition Scorecard and make yourself familiar with the five dimensions of sustainability. This template can give you inspiration and help you plan what needs to happen before, during and after the event.
Step 2: (Engage key stakeholders) Invite all key event stakeholders to a 2-hour meeting to set ambitions. All stakeholders that might influence key decisions about the event should take part.
Step 3: (Set ambition) Show the Ambition Scorecard and ask all participants in the meeting to note their suggested ambition score for each sustainability dimension on a posted note.
Step 4: (Motivate ambitions) Ask the participants in turn to justify their ambition score on the first sustainability dimension. In the case of large discrepancies in participants’ scores, leave the room to have a discussion and reach a consensus. Agree upon a shared ambition score.
Step 5: (Motivate ambitions II) Repeat step 4 for each of the other four sustainability dimensions and agree upon a score for each.
