Welcome to the Circular Village

A baseline material flow analysis is the first step to understanding any system. A festival is an ideal system to examine as it is defined in a specific space and time – it is temporary and its boundaries clearly sectioned off (often with an actual gate around the festival grounds). For Welcome to the Village, a music festival in the north of the Netherlands, we mapped the material, waste, and water flows. An analysis of this kind is not only an interesting snapshot of the festival, but a crucial step to take when transitioning to circularity. Read the full report here.
