editor’s letter What came as a surprise to some, considering it’s Europe’s third largest industrial port, Hamburg was awarded the “European Green Capital” status for 2011 by the European Commission. (Stockholm won last year). The reason Hamburg grabbed the honor was due to “local efforts to improve the environment, the economy and the quality of life of growing urban populations.” That last sentence is the definition of “Sustainability.” The city is presently undergoing the largest redevelopment project on the continent to clean up and repopulate its dockside area known as HafenCity. But it’s about more than “greening” the area. The project is also designed to make money for the city and small business, and create a new social meeting place for all types of people. And, by the way, create Europe’s next architectural icon: the ultra cool Elbphilharmonie (see pages 24/25). There’s a bit of confusion sometimes with sustainability. Some people equate it with being green. But comparing sustainability to being green is like saying business is the same thing as accounting. Sustainability, as defined by many others at MPI’s World Education Conference (WEC) in Orlando this summer, is simply about protecting what we have now for future generations. Economically, socially and environmentally. A big topic of conversation at WEC was the 2012 London Olympics, often called the first “Sustainable Games,” because the event’s entire impact relating to “people, planet, profit” from the bid to final night is being managed. New standards and reporting frameworks have been developed around these Games, and here’s the big payoff for planners: The frameworks are designed to compare one event with any other event in any industry. As Paul Snyder, InterContinental Hotel Group’s CSR guy for the Americas, said at WEC: “What gets measured gets managed.” There’s a bunch of C-level executives paying attention to that these days due to political and marketplace factors, and you get the sense that we’re just getting our toes wet in the arena of sustainability. We spent a lot of hours on this issue coming up with compelling, exciting and educational group experiences that tie into sustainability. Send me an email and let me know how we did...
