Green Melt! Dinner 2012
Saturday, 14 July 2012, 14:00 – 20:00, Melt! Festival, Ferropolis, Germany
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. Adjustments need to be made in all areas of life. Through exemplary actions, relevant actors can function as role models for the implementation of vital climate-protection measures. The music and entertainment industry has a unique opportunity – through positive examples and practical solutions – to guide society towards a more climate-friendly future.
In the past years the Green Music Initiative, Ferropolis and the Melt! Festival closely collaborated to develop several solutions that made the Melt! Festival a more climate-friendly event. One major achievements is the solar energy panels that were installed at Ferropolis, were the Melt! Festival takes place.
To built upon those achievements the Zukunftswerkstatt Ferropolis project was initiated by Ferropolis and the Green Music Initiative to proactively develop solutions of how the energy generated by the solar panels can be stored to use it more efficiently in future. The aim of the first project session, which took place on the 19th of June 2012, was to exchange experiences and to generate new ideas in regard to innovative, renewable power generation and energy storage technologies. Subsquent to the Melt! Festival a second session took place on the 20th of July 2012, during which the tourism offers of the Ferropolis were discussed.
All results were officially presented on the 6th of September in front of selected representatives of the national and international music scenes and politics at the Berlin Music Week 2012. More information can be found here.
The Green Melt! Dinner 2012 gave the participants a special opportunity to share their experiences in this and related field as well as to network in a relaxed atmosphere. Selected high-ranking representatives from music, politics, science, media and environmental associations discussed how innovative approaches in the music industry can lead to concrete results in the reduction of carbon emissions. Input statements offered a variety of topics for rich and lively discussions.
