In the last couple of years we have been focusing on different kind of aspects regarding sustainability. We took our Revolution program to a next level by making significant decisions. Check the DGTL Amsterdam Revolution page to see which projects we've been working on.
The sustainability focus for this Barcelona edition is the recycling of urine phosphate to produce plant fertilizer. This has never been done in Spain on such a scale; the plan is to recycle 3000 liters of pee per day.
Another of the projects included in the program is the recycling of plastic with Taller Esférica, an organisation that approaches the subject from an industrial designer perspective. Festival goers will be able to manufacture their own DGTL keychains from recycled plastic at their workshop during the festival.
Another project comprised in the Revolution program is Food Makers, an association that works behind the cooking stoves with refugees, immigrants and other groups at risk of social exclusion to offer them something as basic as an occupation, thus fostering a realistic way to integrate them into the host society.
DGTL has partnered up with Baja Bikes: we offer bike combination tickets to persuade our visitors to come by bike, instead of by taxi, bus or metro. We like riding because it's environmentally friendly and sticks to our zero waste philosophy. Besides the fact taxis are more expensive and metro doesn't work all night on Friday.
Revolution will move on with their projects focused on waste, energy use, the output of carbon dioxide, sustainable food suppliers and the increase of creating awareness.
