Become a part of the Green Waterfront

The entire festival will be filled with various exhibitions and activities that visitors can enjoy and learn from along the waterfront. This year we have a special focus on upper secondary education, who we invite to the Waterfront for a learning environment.

If you have a product or an idea that can become part of the Green Waterfront, please contact us at +45 2520 2314.


Matching expectations

In order to clarify our roles during the festival, we have designed an expectations-form, in which we briefly describe the division of roles and provide good advice for planning your event and marketing it.

The sustainability festival takes place in Aalborg but is for the whole of North Jutland and Denmark. The Sustainability Festival, however, focuses on the local, so that organizers from North Jutland are prioritized in terms of city places etc.


Come join us!

To create the best framework for The Sustainability Festival, it is important to know what to expect from each other. Below is what you can expect from us and what we expect from you as organizers. It will also entail recommendations for you - based on our previous experiences. We look forward to creating a fantastic sustainability festival with you!
