The DIT-ACHIEV Model - a tool for sustainable event management

Kevin Griffin, Dublin Institute of Technology

Chapter 5 in Razaq Raj & Morpeth, N. (Eds.) Sustainable Events, CABI, Oxfordshire.


This chapter outlines how, in theory, an environmentally integrated destination management model could be employed in an events context, thereby stretching the understanding of sustainability to include themes as diverse as Administration, Community, Heritage, Industry, Enterprise and Visitor. It is proposed that use of this integrated management approach, or model, could mitigate the negative and maximise the positive impacts of events.
