Sustainability plan

Presented by

The NORR Festival is committed to the environment and strives to implement concrete measures to reduce its ecological impact.

Measures introduced in 2022
  • Ensure proper waste and recycling management at the gathering site and at registration
  • Introduce a composting system to better manage organic materials and reduce the amount of waste produced
  • Ask participants to bring reusable dishes and introduce a dishwashing system after each meal
  • Serving alcoholic drinks in reusable EcoCupglasses
  • Provide a shuttle system to transport festival-goers to the different activity sites
  • Have the risk acceptance form signed online rather than printing paper versions
  • Distribute tickets electronically and not by post
  • Prioritise the rental of local equipment to reduce the festival's carbon footprint
  • Encourage collective transport and carpooling between participants

Waste management

NORR is taking concrete steps to reduce the amount of waste produced at the festival. A waste separation system was implemented in 2021; compost, recycling and waste are now treated separately and appropriately.

Awareness raising

Raising awareness among our festival-goers about the importance of practicing sustainable tourism and caring for the environment is also at the heart of our objectives. The "Leave-No-trace" values are conveyed by our coaches in several of the workshops given at the event.

Valuing the outdoors among young people from disadvantaged backgrounds

In partnership with Motivaction Jeunesse, NORR plans to organise a "Camp" for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. This gathering, which will take place on the Sunday of the event, aims to help these young people discover that it is possible to grow and develop through adventure and passion.

Development of the territory and promotion of healthy lifestyles

The event promotes a healthy and active lifestyle throughout its range of activities. Festival-goers have the chance to learn about many outdoor sports during their weekend and it is a great opportunity for them to discover something new.
