Materials & Waste: Roskilde Festival Case Study
Roskilde Festival, Denmark (Capacity 130,000) YOUROPE member. One of the biggest challenges for Roskilde is campsite waste. As well as exploring a solution to supply festival-goers with their own camping kit, Roskilde have established community camping areas, where the festival runs campaigns to communicate what kind of behaviour they expect from their participants, e.g., “Leave No Trace Camp” and “Clean Out Loud Camp”. By involving their audiences, Roskilde has avoided cleaning up huge amounts of waste.
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
