NORDEN - the nordic arts festival

Nominated and won

Already for the tenth time the HELGA! Festival Award and the NORDEN - The Nordic Arts Festival really clears the air: The GRÜNSTE 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!

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.
The educational center RENN.nord writes: The project "NORDEN Festival" was awarded as "Project Sustainability 2023" in the category "N". The established sustainability award is presented by the four Regional Network Centers for Sustainability Strategies (RENN) in cooperation with the German Council for Sustainable Development under the umbrella of Gemeinschaftswerk Nachhaltigkeit.
The NORDEN Festival is a lighthouse project for green event management that thinks and implements sustainability holistically. Sustainability plays a major role not only in the organization. At the festival itself, an attempt is made to inspire visitors with information and workshops in a sustainable manner. The festival is a tourist highlight for the Schlei region and an engine for social and economic development in Schleswig and nationwide.

This prize was awarded in the original during the celebrations of the Day of German Unity in Hamburg on 02.10.2023 at 15.30 on the NDR main stage at 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!
