We are committed to efforts that support creating a more sustainable festival. Our focus is on sustainability education, emphasising that education should be hands-on and fun. We’re aiming to serve as an example other major Albanian events. Each year, we analyse our footprint to identify new initiatives to minimise our environmental impact.
In South Outdoor Festival there will be various activities & workshops related to the environment for adults and kids. The schedule for participating in them will be published soon.
Just as last year, we will be collecting plastic, aluminium, and glass waste throughout the festival. About 30-40% of the waste produced during the event can be reused or recycled. To further improve these results, there will be about 50 Volunteers going around the festival and collecting selective waste.
Our goal is to achieve a 50% recycling rate at least.
With the help of our green Partner "ITQ Project" we are excited to introduce our solar powered “tree”: festivalgoers can use its roots to charge their smartphones for free.
Plus, enjoy the best dance classics from across the decades with our DJ line-up, played directly from the Power Tree!
An environmentally friendly space for all, the South Outdoor Festival is also offering a dedicated green space to children 3-10 years old. From activities ranging from “How to become an activist” to taking part in compost challenges and creating one’s own arts & crafts from waste, we highly value raising awareness among younger generations.
Collect empty bottles, cups, and cans off the ground and earn points for recycling all weekend long. Redeem the points for festival merchandise, experiences, and other vouchers.
We will be offering water from the main water supply of Borsh, of the same quality as that found water bottles. Refilling a reusable water bottle makes a huge difference in the volume of plastic bottle waste. Look for the water droplet symbols on the map to locate these points.
To show our dedication on making the festival as sustainable as possible, our delicious food will be served in recycled paper dishes, hence lessening the environmental footprint.
"Never give up on your cup": this year at South Outdoor Festival, drinks will be poured into reusable cups. Buy your first cup (50 ALL), then take your used one back and receive a new one. If you don’t want to lug your cup around all night, you can exchange it and get your money back.
You won't see plastic straws at our bars, as they are extremely harmful to the environment; therefore our bartenders will only provide reusable straws, upon request.
