Sustainability is an integral theme for the content of the debates and presentations at Folkemødet. However, Folkemødet is lacking sustainable approaches in context of the organizational execution of the festival itself.
Problem – what challenge are you are addressing?
Reducing the amount of waste at Folkemødet, specifically disposable tableware and similar “use and throw-away” materials.
Target group – your targeted users and/or customers?
The aim is for the guests to receive a better and much sought after move towards more sustainable solutions when buying food and beer.
1. Reusable plastic cups with refund (2020)
2. Biodegradable cutlery and tableware in all food stalls (2021)
3. Color coding waste bins and corresponding labelling of goods (2020)
Value propositions – what makes your concept unique?
Changing festival behaviour with user-friendly solutions, thereby increasing sustainability and reducing waste. A structural change is required, but ultimately the proposals benefit the customer and address emerging sustainability demands by the modern festival goer.
