PEOPLE ♥ PLANET
EXTREMA ♥ PEOPLE & PLANET
In 2012 we introduced the project ‘Love People & Planet’. With this project, Extrema shows her social awareness and makes her events more durable, step by step. Together with the visitors we show our love for people and planet. This mental legacy is the guiding theme of our organisation.
Extrema Outdoor and Solar Weekend signed a ‘Green Deal’ in 2015. Together with the Green Events Nederland-platform, Mysteryland, Welcome to the Future, Zwarte Cross, Into the Great Wide Open, DGTL and Amsterdam Open Air we are working on ‘trash-free festivals.’
Extrema Outdoor received the ‘Greener Festival Award’ with pride in 2014. The English organisation A Greener Festival presents this award and tests festivals worldwide on their green prestations.
We should be thankful for the fact that a beautiful piece of nature is being provided to return to as one big family each year. Therefore, let’s give something in return. We do this by means of a few points of attention that we extend yearly.
Free drinking water
Dancing makes you thirsty and water is healthy! That’s why pure drinking water is free at any time and bottles can be refilled for free.
Stash your Trash
We like to keep our festivals clean, but for this we need your help very badly! Trash? Throw it in the appropriate garbage can. Little effort, big results. Our Trashure Teams also give a hand. Would you like to help out? Sign up here! To keep the festival area clean, we have a few points of attention as well:
We don’t hand out any flyers, gadgets our timetables at our festivals. Are you afraid to miss out on your favourite artist? Don’t be! Download here our app which includes all timetables. Besides that, there are only drinks obtainable without caps, to make sure no plastic keeps on lingering in nature for years.
Reusing is good using! Wouldn’t it be a waste to throw away all our beautiful decoration materials?
Together we recycle all garbage, and in order to make this possible we create a mono-stream: pet bottles and pet cups.
Are you traveling by car? Carpooling is lots of fun! But of course, using the public transport is another option. Shuttle busses will be driving from the station (Best) towards the festival, and vice versa. It’s also possible to buy combi tickets for train and bus. Event Travel offers bus trips from the inland and neighbouring countries. Isn’t that easy? Please check out www.eventtravel.nl for more information.
Good and healthy food is important. Besides the usual options, we offer biological, vegetarian and local products as well. Any allergies? We’ve got that covered. We don’t want our oceans to be emptied, so that’s why our catering takes the fish index its advice into account, which you can find at www.goedevis.nl.
We love loud music, but we love our ears even more! That’s why earphones will be sold at the festival. You can find more information on this topic at www.ilovemyears.nl. We also measure the noise in the neighbourhood during the festival to make sure we cause as little inconvenience as possible.
We make use of a smart energy plan, which causes our aggregates to use as little diesel as possible.
Are you physically disabled? That doesn’t mean you can’t experience the festival to the max. The festival area is easy accessible and special toilets for invalids are being provided. And we are always open for new suggestions! Do you have a good idea? Let us know via[email protected]!
Contribution guest list
