Sustainable festivals and events

Festivals and indoor and outdoor events generate huge amounts of waste and high carbon emissions. An increasing number of festivals are becoming aware of the problem and are committed to achieving their goals concerning resource-efficient organisation and execution. For example, they are making more organic, regional, vegetarian and vegan food and drink options available, and the cost of taking public transport is included in the festival ticket.
