Vert le Futur

Association for a sustainable culture and events sector

The association Vert le Futur was founded in 2020 with the aim of making the Swiss culture and events sector more environmentally friendly and inclusive. As an interdisciplinary network of event organisers, agents, people working in the culture sector and sustainability specialists, Vert le Futur supports knowledge sharing with regard to ecological sustainability at all levels of art and culture. The association collects and shares knowledge, highlights best practices and is committed to helping the Swiss culture and events sector become more sustainable.

With the Tatenbank – a project of Vert le Futur – cultural and artistic practitioners can take concrete action in the field of sustainability. Whether in gastronomy, mobility, communication or energy: on the online knowledge platform, they will find tools, know-how, best practice examples and a lot of inspiration for their respective fields of work and activity. Everything is compact, in one place and freely accessible.

Vert le Futur regularly launches events on the topic of sustainability in culture. This allows actors in the cultural and event sector and experts in the field of sustainability to network and exchange ideas.
