Friday 19 January 2024: The Power of Events

Festivals and events have proven to be not only stages for rising stars, but also playgrounds for experiments and gatherings to boost statements and make events. Events can be seen as a ‘ mini-society’. Within this mini-society we want to learn and develop, we want to try and test, and receive feedback for social development. And we need your help to get this going! During thise interactive programme, we dive deeper into this framework. The programme is led by ESNS sustainability coordinator Rob van Wegen who takes us along a journey throughout the variety of possibilities of the festival industry.

During the programme, you will get the chance to network with a diverse group of participants, be updated about the latest developments and more! With a variety of roundtable conversations on the topics of circularity, sustainability, social impact and public engagement it’s a programme you don’t want to miss out on!
