For two years, Videocittà has availed itself of the consultancy of the Ecosystems Foundation for the calculation of all the emissions generated by the Festival: energy consumption and waste, but also the transport of materials, artists and the public. A precious work that allowed us to precisely define the environmental impact of the Festival.
Videocittà e Ecosystems Foundation they have been collaborating together since 2021 to make the event increasingly eco-sustainable. The support began with the sharing of the GreenFEST - Green Festivals and Events through Sustainable Tenders - reference project for the improvement of the sustainable management of cultural events. Furthermore, Ecosistemi carried out the reporting of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the event and the report on the aspects of environmental sustainability. The goal of the partnership is to increasingly reduce the environmental impact that the event has on the community and the surrounding environment.
Fighting climate change, offsetting CO2 emissions, protecting biodiversity.
These are the goals of OXYGEN, the project of the Lazio region which aims to plant a tree for each inhabitant of the Region in 3 years. A project for everyone, a green turning point to make Lazio the region of environmental sustainability.
Videocittà has been participating in the program for two years OXYGEN area of Lazio region. In the last edition, the collaboration led to the planting of trees in the area of the Aguzzano Park in Rome that can offset the CO2 emissions generated within a few years. Returning the oxygen consumed to the environment.
Videocittà relies on for the next edition Rebrain Consulting to promote a new culture within the festival regarding the collection, recycling and reuse of polluting waste materials, because even when it comes to sustainability, vision is needed.
We will install cigarette collection corners that, thanks to the use of a QR code, will tell the journey of transformation of the butts which, once purified, will become a plastic polymer that can be used in various sectors.
We will invite the patrons of the festival to differentiate the caps of the water bottles in special containers and inside a kids area created in collaboration with Rebrain Consulting and Explora - Children's Museum, we will thus give rise to an educational project in which operators will guide the children on a path where the caps collected will turn first into plastic flakes, then into a filament which, inserted inside a 3D printer, will produce live gadgets to be given to small participants.
Rebrain Consulting will make the shopping bags in R-Pet for the press conference and institutional meetings, a waterproof polymer obtained through the recovery and recycling processes of the common Pet, which involve sorting, washing, crushing and melting plastic materials. The largest and most resistant summer ecological cotton shoppers will be made for the Festival in July.
