We are optimists, and we think the future is bright. That’s why Paradise City Festival is an event that works with a strict environmental policy. We hope to instigate positive change and inspire our visitors to live sustainably.
In this series, we highlight each and every detail of our plan to minimize our ecological footprint. Up first: our local ecosystem
Paradise City would be nothing without its mind-blowingly beautiful location. Throughout the years, we have invested in the rejuvenation and monitored the sustainability of the gardens around Ribaucourt Castle with a dedicated gardener – not just after every edition but year-round as well.
In 2021, we invested in larger, more stable floating bridges that minimise water turbidity that disrupts the aquatic ecosystem during the event. In 2022 however, the larger visitor capacity caused the waterways to become slightly more turbulent and acidic than the summer before. However, this increase remains marginal, and numbers are still comfortably within the targeted norms.
In the future, we will conduct a new biodiversity assessment since the last one dates back to 2016. This report will give a more detailed update on the current state of the ecosystem. Additionally, we will explore the options for a more thorough drainage plan, including more efficient wastewater filters – however, the feasibility of this investment remains to be seen.
