We can work all we like to reduce the use of electricity, make waste disposal efficient etc – but there's one vital piece of environmental impact that needs to be prioritised. For most festivals, between 50% and 85% of the CO2 emissions come from transporting festival materials, audience, artists and crew to the festival and back. Thousands, sometimes tens or even hundreds of thousands of festival goers travel by car, bus, train and plane. Despite the huge impact it’s an often ignored problem, perhaps because it’s the most difficult aspect for organizers to improve. Waste, energy, food and water seem often much more within the direct control of our own production teams - whereas transport choices are often made by individuals, based on availability, easy access, and price.

But we have to ask ourselves: Is using fossil fuel transport options still a responsible choice in our day and age, with pollution and global warming being arguably the biggest threats to humankind? How does my travel today influence our world of tomorrow? We live at a time when it becomes more and more difficult to make the right decision given the complexity of our increasingly globalised and interconnected world. Choices affecting the environment taken on one side of the globe can have an impact on the living conditions, the lives and the future of people thousands of miles away

So how do you facilitate new sustainable travel solutions for your audience and festival materials? How do you facilitate innovation for infrastructure to support your transportation options? How to transport goods and people in a non-fossil way? Can it even be done? Tijl Couzij will talk about his best practice at Into the Great Wide Open: how they managed to have buses, trucks, ships and forklifts to operate without net use of fossil fuels, how they experimented with ways to get people to choose the more sustainable travel options, and how a festival can kick-off (admittedly small) change in the transportation and haulage sector.
