SIGN UP for Sustainability, 3rd July 2012
Backstage and Roskilde Festival invite you on an adventure through Roskilde Festival's many green installations, crazy experiments, enriching talks and audience-involving activities and games.
Backstage Sustainability focuses on environmental and sustainability projects at festivals and events, as well as how you can get your audience involved in spreading the green energy. Join us as we explore this year's environmental and audience-involving initiatives at the festival, including Green City - a camping area devoted to encouraging and inspiring sustainable and environmentally-friendly behaviour. And try a new type of electric vehicle - especially designed for companies.
After the event there will be plenty of opportunity to enjoy the Festival’s wide variety of music and cultural events and network with other professionals in the Backstage Village or Mediebyen (restricted area). Please note that places at this workshop are limited.
