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