NORDEN - the nordic arts festival


NORDEN is green
From the very beginning, NORDEN has been a sustainably conceived festival with a constant eye on resource conservation and responsibility. We make sustainability a central theme of planning and implementation, because an environmentally friendly orientation of the festival is important to us in order to keep the impact on people and the environment as low as possible. Together with you we show that a sustainable festival is fun and forward-looking!
The Regional Network Units for Sustainability Strategies (RENN) have been partners of the NORDEN Festival for several years. They were founded in 2016 by the German Council for Sustainable Development (RNE) with the mission to carry the UN Agenda 2030 with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals into society. RENN.nord has set itself the task of networking actors in the northern German states more closely with one another and setting impulses for more sustainability.

At the NORDEN Festival, RENN.nord always presents great hands-on activities and informs visitors in the Green Pavilion.

Nominated and won
Already for the tenth time the HELGA! Festival Award and the NORDEN - The Nordic Arts Festival really clears the air: The GREENEST WIESE can now be found at the NORDEN in Schleswig.
An independent jury of experts selected the three best festivals from Germany in different categories from numerous entries. The best festivals of the year will then be honored at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg. At the award ceremony on September 21, the NORDEN Festival received the first prize in the category Greenest Meadow and now officially counts as the most sustainable festival in Germany!

But that's not all! Already on 08.09.2023 at the NORDEN Festival, we were awarded by the Schleswig-Holstein Minister of Economics Claus Ruhe Madsen, the prize "PROJECT SUSTAINABILITY" endowed with 1,000 EURO. This prize was awarded in the original during the celebrations for the Day of German Unity in Hamburg on 02.10.2023 at 15.30 on the NDR main stage at the Jungfernstieg. Dörte Busse-Meyn (RENN.nord) addressed touching words to the NORDEN team in her Ladatio:
"You give inspiration: The supporting program includes numerous actors who contribute to sustainable development with forward-looking ideas. You live the message that a festival can not only be entertainment, but also a platform for inspiration of positive changes in our society.
This commitment does not go unseen and so I am pleased to award the NORDEN Festival today as an outstanding sustainability project in the category "N - Now and Locally" by Projekt Nachhaltigkeit. The NORDEN Festival has become a role model for sustainable event management and shines as a beacon project between the seas. Dear Manfred Pakusius, dear Marno Happ, dear team - congratulations!"
