One love for humans and the environment
As organisers of Summerjam, we are aware of our ecological and social responsibility and try to live up to it in the planning and implementation of the festival. Summerjam takes place in a unique recreational area in Cologne. We also want to be a cultural enrichment for the city of Cologne at this location. We have always taken care to leave the site tidy and clean after the event, thus protecting nature and wildlife at Fühlinger See. We also hold our visitors to account: Enjoy – don´t destroy! We appeal to them not to use any disposable products, to also think about sustainability when camping and to deposit their rubbish in the right place – we will take care of the waste separation. However, we are aware that such a large event is nevertheless a burden on the environment. That is why we are continuously working to reduce this ecological footprint.
In cooperation with organisations, associations and the "City of Cologne", we as organisers also offer a space for social projects and want to have a positive impact on society with various activities. Summerjam has always been a place where everyone is welcome. We want to create a family-friendly and barrier-free festival experience and enable all our visitors to participate.
In the spirit of our global responsibility - which begins on our doorstep - we have been working with the following partners for years.
Viva con Agua"Deposit collection"* at Summerjam: Viva con Agua has been collecting deposit cups on the festival grounds for years. This way our festival visitors can support water projects in Africa with their donation. As organisers of the Summerjam Festival, we share the vision of the all-profit organisation: "WATER FOR ALL - ALL FOR WATER!" Viva con Agua has been working since 2006 to ensure that all people in the world have access to clean drinking water, hygiene facilities and basic sanitation. At Summerjam we can help them achieve this: Donate deposit cups and do good!
*"Pfandraising" – a pun that only makes sense in German.
