Room Three
11:30 - 12:30

As part of its three-year project, Future-Fit Festivals, YOUROPE – The European Festival Association is developing the European Green Festival Roadmap 2030, based on the requirements of the European Green Deal, whilst embracing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the needs of the industry.

The publication aims to provide European festivals with information and actionable measures needed to expedite the process of transformation up to the end of the decade.

The Roadmap will be the first pan-European publication of its kind to be jointly developed and published by and for the festival sector, and thus will also be relevant as an aid for organisers of festivals and other large and open-air events far beyond the borders of the EU.

The publication will provide a comprehensive framework for the ambitious sustainable improvement of (big) cultural events, from management structures to concrete technical measures in the various action fields of the creation and production process.

In this workshop, hosts Linnéa Svensson and Holger Jan Schmidt aim to collect the requirements of those active in the field and encourage them to share their ideas.
