Abstract

With the notable exception of recent pilot events, it has been almost 18 months since most people in Ireland were able to attend concerts or live sporting events in person. While there has been much justified lamenting of what has been lost, there has been an ecological benefit to this cultural absence. This is because the climate cost of the creative and cultural industries extend far beyond the rubbish left behind by revellers at festivals.
