Touring and sustainability

Touring is a fundamental source of revenue for musicians. If you want to thrive, you need to get yourself out there and show your music around the world. For many artists, that accounts for a significant amount of rides on an airplane, cars, etc, contributing to the damaging effects on our climate.
So, how can artists rethink their touring practices without jeopardizing their success and income? What does “slow touring” mean and how is it possible to put in practice? Because it’s urgent to do much more than just buy carbon offsets, this panel aims to approach this topic critically.
