Exclusive Workshop: Resource Plans and “Designing Out” Event Waste

People all over the world are embracing the principles of the circular economy and developing new ways to manage resources. The idea that every consumer needs to own each product, to be used and then discarded as waste without a second thought is no longer viable. Given that waste is becoming a bigger environmental and health threat every day, we need to rethink and change the way we use and design products.

Take for example the fact that the average  festival organizer generates up to 2,3 kg of waste per visitor per day - which is more than the average citizen in their normal life. How can we look beyond the current “take, make, dispose” mentality employed in festivals to “design out” waste? Where can we redefine products and services in order to minimize the negative impact of a festival? This workshop is interactive and hands-on. You will learn how to find solutions and design out the waste for your own event. And we have the perfect guide for the session in Leonie Boon.

Green Events is a solid team of creative, passionate and hands-on individuals, united by the mission to restore the balance on earth. They share a background in the events industry and are highly skilled sustainability experts, combining research and high-level strategic knowledge with hands-on experience in the field, all down to the nitty-gritty. Leonie Boon, a resource expert in the team, has over 15 years hands-on experience in the waste industry, and onsite at festivals her nickname is The Recycle Queen. Among others she has managed resources at DGTL, Welcome to the Future, Mysteryland, Thuishaven, and Amsterdam Open Air. She combines curiosity, persistence, a friendly smile and dedication to design out waste: a dedication which is already achieving amazing results at events. She would love to share her knowledge and guide you towards a future-proof festival.
