The environment-friendly approach of the Paléo music festival
Christophe Cucheval, Environment Officer and Cleaning Coordinator, Paléo Music Festival Nyon
The Paléo Festival is the largest open air festival in Switzerland and one of the largest in Europe. Every evening, this music festival welcomes 35 000 visitors over 6 days. Since 2000, Paléo has officially committed to becoming more sustainable. The first stage was to set up a waste management system. New lines of action are now being explored, including transport and food provenance, in order to further reduce the festival’s environmental impact.
