Creating local festivals for SDG and sustainability awareness
Type of Work
In cooperation with several Danish municipalities, Dalberg Media facilitates festivals focusing on sustainability in different towns around the country. The festival combines fun and family-oriented activities with debates, company presentations, and a curriculum for school children to create awareness of the SDGs in the general public and amongst local youths.
Leading up to the festival, we connect with local schools to tailor an innovation program for the older students to try their skills on sustainability challenges addressing real needs in the municipality. For the latest SDG-festival, we included a hackathon program in the festival design, allowing nine-graders to co-create ideas to concrete challenges formulated by the municipality.
“I hope that the results of the Sustainable Now Festival can inspire other municipalities to address sustainability issues and continue to put the Global Goals on the agenda”
– Henrik Rasmussen, Mayor of Vallensbæk Municipality
