About our Positive Impact Partnership & the Eventwell manifesto
ABPCO collaborated with Positive Impact to see how we can influence change in the events industry.
We worked collaboratively with our members to recognise our influence in the areas of economic, social and environmental impact, and are developing tools and resources that can be utilised to take a sustainable approach.
We have committed to the EventWell Manifesto
Eventwell teamed up with Mind and Rethink Mental Health’s campaign Time to Change, to encourage event businesses and employers to make a firm commitment to better mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, by signing the EventWell Manifesto and then spending six months working with EventWell and TTC to develop an action plan that will prepare them to sign the Time to Change Employer Pledge in September during Event Wellbeing Week. The Event Industry is massively under represented in terms of number of employers who have signed the pledge, and as an industry we urgently need to change this if we are to impact the one in three event professionals who will experience mental illness this year.

The EventWell Manifesto is also part of EventWell’s Five Step Plan which encourages employers to:
- be taking better care of themselves and leading by example
- sign the manifesto
- work towards signing the Employer Pledge
- Hold open conversations on mental health in the workplace by booking an EventWell workshop or campfire
- Invest in Mental Health First Aid Training
