For us, sustainability is not a state, but a process. We started on the path to more sustainability many years ago with the ECO initiative, because we believe that music and festivals play an important role in social change. Through the splash! Festival we want to create special moments and bring people together, while at the same time showing attitude and taking responsibility. Our vision is to create experiences that change the world in a positive and sustainable way.
We are constantly working to critically examine our processes and operations and improve them in terms of environmental and social sustainability, without losing sight of economic sustainability. Whenever possible, we opt for the more sustainable alternative as part of our event planning. We view systemic and financial limitations as challenges that can spur us on and serve as drivers for innovation. This is also part of the path to more sustainability: one comes up against limits, but we will always work to push these limits and thus make change possible piece by piece. Through our FAIRopolis Area right next to the Green Camp, we have also created a place in 2019 where we would like to raise even more awareness for various sustainability topics and give NGOs and initiatives a platform.
Our values of openness, passion, respect and responsibility should not only be lived within our team, but also at our festivals. The splash! Festival should be a colorful and diverse place, a place that leaves traces first and foremost in the form of beautiful memories and not through mountains of garbage, polluted water or destroyed forest and meadow areas. You are an important part of our festival, so we need your support and help. On this page you will find some tips on what you can do to make our festival more sustainable.
