It's time to stand together. Due to the coronavirus numerous #Bundesliga & 2nd Bundesliga matches will have to be held without a stadium audience over the next two weekends. Like all fans in Germany and throughout Europe, we regret that the unique football experience in the stadium, which we all love, is not possible at the moment. We therefore have come together as a #team and have decided that it is time to stand together! We wanted to do our part to ensure that as many fans as possible can still enjoy Bundesliga live. So together with our long-standing partner DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga, we have agreed that we will broadcast the original Sky Bundesliga conference on Saturday afternoon as well as the 2nd Bundesliga conference on Sunday live on #SkySportNewsHD, free to all, over the next two match days.

Here are our demands of this open letter:
These are some first steps, essential to our chance of avoiding a climate- and ecological disaster.
- Effective immediately, halt all investments in fossil fuel exploration and extraction, immediately end all fossil fuel subsidies and immediately and completely divest from fossil fuels.
- EU member states must advocate to make ecocide an international crime at the International Criminal Court.
- Include total emissions in all figures and targets, including consumption index, international aviation and shipping.
- Starting today – establish annual, binding carbon budgets based on the current best available science and the IPCC’s budget which gives us a 66% chance of limiting the global temperature rise to below 1.5 °C. They need to include the global aspect of equity, tipping points and feedback loops and shouldn’t depend on assumptions of possible future negative emissions technologies.
- Safeguard and protect democracy.
- Design climate policies that protect workers and the most vulnerable and reduce all forms of inequality: economic, racial and gender.
- Treat the climate- and ecological emergency like an emergency.
Our industry is in need of urgent support! Almost 6 months ago we watched our busy work calendars empty & now our warehouses show the stark reality, empty of people, but full of equipment unused and gathering dust…
#LightItInRed is a UK based direct action lighting protest that is scheduled to take place on the night of Monday 6th July 2020 … to draw attention to the critical condition of the UK live event and entertainment industry and its need for special government support to see it through to re-starting. The dynamic “creative sector” which includes live entertainment, music, events, theatre, performance, and the arts generates around £110 billion annually (based on DCMS figures) for the UK economy … and is known for its invention, passion, and flair.
Red Alert is also being supported by numerous companies, professionals, organisations and other individuals and practitioners working in the entertainment technology industry and performing arts sector. The Red Alert campaign’s goal is to get the live entertainment and technical production sector in front of politicians, specifically those in the exchequer and at the DCMS (Department of Culture Media & Sport), the latter as the industry’s representatives at parliamentary level.
It replaces the VGA in a modern and intuitive graphical interface that allows you for instance to position multiple panes next to each other. i.e. clip view and a playlist pane in the same UI.
The same speed and reactivity are maintained, as well as all know shortcut keys such as alt+arrows for navigation, F1 for naming, F2 for toggling cam/clip mode etc.
UK lighting rental company Clearsound Productions has not let the Coronavirus lockdown stop them from shining their lights … to boost morale in their ‘hood, send messages of positive energy and show solidarity for all those frontline and essential workers putting their lives on the line as the country battles the virus. In a resounding Sunday night collective action – the largest to date - on 19th April, over 50 lighting and laser companies joined Clearsound to shine lights in the sky, united by the hashtag #ourshininglight
Theatres across Europe are taking up the fight, initiated by the UK's Association of Lighting Designers (ALD) as the #SaveStageLighting campaign, against the EU's proposed Eco-design Working Plan 2016-2019 regulation. London's National theatre is joined by Cánovas Theatre in Malaga, Lliure Theatre in Barcelona, Civic Theatre in Dublin and Circo Price Theatre in Madrid, beaming the campaign’s official hashtag – #SaveStageLighting – on the exteriors of their buildings over the past week.
Yesterday’s #WeMakeEvents call to action focused on raising awareness for over a million professionals working in the technical side of the entertainment industry who have either lost, or are at imminent risk of losing their jobs - 600,000 of whom deliver live events, and around 70 per cent of the workforce are freelance. The government’s £1.57 billion investment to the cultural and arts institutions will not reach the key workers from the industry, and the imminent closure of the self-employed income support scheme at the end of the month further threatens their livelihood.
When asked if there is a problem with people leaving the industry due to COVID-19 Duncan answered that, “Freelancers have been forced to find work elsewhere. In a recent survey of 2,800 people over 30% of freelancers said they have had to leave the industry, and 20% say they hope to come back but are very unsure whether they are able to because of the lack of certainty.” #WeMakeEvents is currently verifying the data from this survey and will be publishing the full report in the coming weeks.
30 September 2020 marked the #WeMakeEvents Global Action Day, in which countries from across the globe came together in solidarity to highlight the plight that is currently facing the worldwide live events industry. In total, over 25 countries took part at 8pm local time, with activations delivering a range of creative responses, such as lighting iconic buildings in red to highlight how the industry is in red alert, as well as beaming shafts of white light into the sky to highlight the mass job losses.
