Social Innovation: Circular Lab @Roskilde Festival
Creating a sustainable world is the central challenge of our time. This is why Danish Roskilde Festival organizes the Circular Lab: in each edition, young entrepreneurs can present their circular solutions for the future in a barn in the middle of the campsite, testing them in the temporary festival environment. Circular means long-lasting and zero waste, e.g. waterproof clothing made out of recycled tents. Read the whole story below.
This story is part of the EU-funded project FUSION – Festivals as Social Innovation Incubators. In FUSION, experts on festivals and youth work have joined forces to create a tailored suite of resources, so that festivals can realize their potential as platforms for social innovation. These include a good-practice guide with social innovation projects at European festivals, a how-to toolbox for developing projects specifically for festivals, and alliances between festivals and social innovation organizations. FUSION will enable young people/organizations to use festivals as a steppingstone to implement their own ideas, products and technologies for the benefit of society.
