Green Music Australia is excited to announce that our flagship music industry training initiative, the Green Action Program (GAP), is now open for expressions of interest from NSW-based music businesses. The program is scheduled to commence in May 2024.
Launched in 2022, GAP is helping businesses across Australia to better understand, monitor and improve their environmental impact. GAP alumni include ABC Music, Unified Music Group, The Corner Hotel, arn (Australian Radio Network), Brunswick Ballroom, MusicNSW and more.
The 2024 New South Wales program has been made possible with the support of the NSW Environment Protection Authority, the NSW Government through Create NSW, and the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its arts funding and advisory body.
The Green Action Program (GAP) supports music businesses to undertake a range of hands-on, in-person and online facilitated learning modules including:
"GAP was so beneficial in bringing environmental issues to the forefront of our business discussions and planning, and bringing our team on that journey. I can't wait to continue learning and taking action for our planet and people."- Fiona McAuliffe, ABC Music Label Manager

"One of the biggest outcomes of doing the Green Action Program was the shift in mindset. Prior to doing the program, considering our responsibility to the environment was something we did from time to time, but now it’s embedded in everything we do. Not only in business but personally as well. It has also provided us with a clear strategic framework for continuing this work into the future. I strongly recommend organisations do this program. It’s perfect if you’re wanting to do more than you are, or even for someone who has no idea where to start.”
