Why is it important?

Our findings show that on-site eco-friendly practices are appreciated by loyal patronage that influence new visitors via a sense of communitas.

Adopting green practices is possible thanks to the festival's community support in on-site eco-friendly initiatives and an effective environmental communication strategy.
