Energy: Futur 2 Festival Case Study
Futur 2 Festival, Germany (daily capacity 5,000) depends on the strength of its communication with stakeholders for funding and smooth running. Being powered entirely by solar, the event team has to undertake thorough advance information gathering to accurately understand the power requirements of all traders and production onsite, ensuring that adequate power can be provided for the event. Communication with their audiences is also key: they are funded by Hamburg’s Department of the Environment on the understanding that the audience will be inspired to engage with sustainability by the many onsite innovations.
It is part of the Erasmus+ project FUTURE FESTIVAL TOOLS, in which YOUROPE together with a team of partners from all over Europe has developed GREEN FESTIVAL STORIES – A COLLECTION OF INSPIRING EXAMPLES FROM ACROSS EUROPE. This guide shows you great cases in sustainable festival development within six focus areas:
- Materials & Waste
- Food & Drink
- Tarvel & Transport
