ECO Coin Talk at ADE Green

Music festivals are all about having fun, and the opportunities to entertain people are endless. And that’s what people expect: to be surprised, entertained and to have a magical experience. But what if you can give your audience a good time and also engage them in creating a better world? This year Amsterdam Dance Events (ADE) green program will explore exactly how sustainable thinking and festivals come together. As part of this exploration, project lead of the ECO coin Lewis Just will speak on a panel exploring how the ECO coin ran its first living labs at DGTL and Welcome to the Village festival. Join us on the 18th October at 11.15am at the DeLaMar Theatre, Amsterdam.

More information and tickets to the panel can be found here.
