After a brief introduction to composting, we will focus exclusively on hot compost on site with our four-chamber simple composting system, which works on a manual drive. Using a specific example, we will explain exactly what such composting is all about, how we can achieve up to 70 degrees Celsius, everything we can spoil, how dangerous it can be and especially how important it is for our existence.
On one of the composts, we will test what it is like to work with and look at what is going on in it. Finally, we will briefly introduce our project for an automatic composter, which we are developing.

Is organizing a festival without waste possible? The popular street market and festival Dobry trh (Good Market) made radical changes in their waste management in 2017 and since has taught more than hundred organizations in Slovakia what they have learned. This workshop is for anyone who is interested in reducing their waste production on events in a fun, and most important, effective way.
(The workshop is a follow up from the lecture: Your festival without waste: How we did it – but attending the lecture is not required for joining the workshop.)

Speakers: Illah van Oijen, Zuzana Macurová, Jana Vašáková

Walk-in workshop for everyone who wants to personalize their TEH conference bag. We got the tools, materials and experience.

Reclaim your trust in your broken parts.

Co-creation Session on the topic of sustainable cultural spaces. There is a lot of research on sustainable events and buildings, let us share what Nova Cvernovka and UfaFabrik have already done and what are we planning to do regarding sustainable Cultural spaces and then together with you, we would like to discuss, brainstorm and talk about new measurements to save energy, lower environmental impact and communicate better about this topic. 

A morning warm-up can look completely different than you would expect!
Get to know the hand-held mowing tool – the scythe which was used by our ancestors thousands of years ago and is still used today. We will explain the individual components and their influence on the almost perfect ergonomics, which ensures minimal effort with the correct mowing technique. We will show how to sharpe the scythe and why it achieves such sharpness. We will try the mowing technique on demanding autumn grass – thus ending a short workshop.

The popular street market and festival Dobrý trh (Good Market) made radical changes in their waste management in 2017 and since has taught more than hundred organizations in Slovakia what they have learned. This lecture is for anyone who is interested in changing their mindset on trash and bringing zero waste in practice for their events. 
(After the lecture, you are also invited to part 2: a practical workshop on how to create your own festival without waste.)

Since 2017, the TEH Startup Support Programme has worked with 13 emerging centres, across the Balkans, Southern European, Eastern Partnership and the Caucasus. Almost all of them will be represented in Bratislava. So this is the moment to share knowledge built, ambitions accomplished, dreams shattered and mistakes celebrated. We will do so in a relay, each startup passing on experiences to the next. All in the company of the mentors from these 4 years: Ada Arduini, Chris Keulemans, Irena Boljunčić Gracin and Mykhailo Glubokyi.

Sustainability topics have been deeply woven in the fabric of all TEH members since the very beginning.
The unsustainable nature of human development and the exploitation of natural resources and human capital has led to the current overall crises, like COVID that has impacted us all like nothing before. Everybody has their unique perspective on sustainability, but if we want to recover and develop we need to find common ground, work together for solutions and move them to the top of every agenda.
So, how can we benefit from and shape current initiatives like the New European Bauhaus for this purpose? Is the European Green Deal inclusive of culture? The cultural sector, we believe, should have a leadership role in this recovery. In order to build this momentum we want to start a sustainability hub to launch a movement full of expertise, creativity and courage, moving towards a brighter future. It is all about building trust in arts and culture, as an accelerator of sustainable change.
Therefore we invite you to attend short introductions about past efforts and actual projects, as well as an open round to discuss how to go on together.

During COVID19, culture was our lung, wasn’t it? It is arts and culture that connected us (even digitally) to each other and kept us sane! But, there is not even one Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) dedicated to culture! This has to change! And it has to change now. Join us in this online interactive workshop with Jordi Pascual and to understand which of the 17 SDGs are connected to your work, which are the most significant for your work and why!

Speakers: Jordi Pascual (Coordinator of the committee on Culture of UCLG), Marta Llobet (Consultor for the committee on Culture of UCLG)
