  • Addressing the importance of a balanced ecology by culture.
  • How to organize festivals eco-friendly?
    (example projects: King of the Meadows, Silence of the Bees, Welcome to the Village)
  • Innovation. How to use festivals as temporary mini-societies to test and stimulate innovation? (example project: Innofest);
