The questionnaire is part of the Pathways of Transformation in the Alps (PORTAL) project, hosted by the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), which seeks to identify transformative nature-based solutions to climate change adaptation in the Alps. Read on for more information on the questionnaire, and on the PORTAL project.

At 2019’s Sziget Festival, we presented our work at the Green Sziget section on how the Sziget Festival impacts its environment of the Óbuda island. We analysed aspects of the island’s vegetation, soil and bird species (as indicator species of ecosystems) and collected cases on how other festivals world-wide consider their environment and mitigate their impacts.
