In 2022–2023, Jazz Finland runs a project, titled Jazz Finland’s carbon-neutral touring model. The aim is to map the carbon footprint and handprint of Finnish live music, and to develop Jazz Finland’s own tour system to become more environmentally sustainable. On top of their three regular tour productions, Jazz Finland produces or supports seven pilot tours in the fall of 2022.
