Big festivals and events will effect the environment in various ways. It is important that the producers and partners of these events take responsibility for the environmental impact they have. Landskronakarnevalen is working towards being in the forefront of finding the best possible way to produce an incredible festival with minimal impact on the environment, through continuously improving the way we work. Landskronakarnevalen’s environmental management system has been created and is being performed according to ”Håll Sverige Rent” and their guidelines for an environmental friendly event.
Landskronakarnevalen will strive to:
- use and present products and commodities with as little environmental impact as possible, preferably organic, near-produced and fairtrade (before, during and after the event).
- work to reduce our waste, reuse and recycle as much as possible during Landskronakarnevalen (before, during and after the the event).
- work for the event’s transportation to be as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible, and for our visitors to easily find information about how to get to and from the carnival with the least possible environmental impact.
- inform and educate our employees and partners so that they know how to work to reduce our impact on the environment.
Accessibility for people with disabilities
Major events, such as Landskronakarnevalen, attract big crowds and are therefore unfortunately not always completely available to people with disabilities. Adapting an event doesn’t only include adapting it to people with visible disabilities, but also for those with, for example, impaired vision, hearing impairment or allergies. We strive for everybody to feel welcome at Landskronakarnevalen, and therefore we are actively working to find the best solutions for as many people as possible. Adaptation takes place in close cooperation with Landskrona City. Furthermore we strive to develop our work for future events.
Landskronakarnevalen will strive to:
- create good accessibility to the entire event.
- clearly inform stakeholders of the location of the accessibility adjustment made in the event area.
- inform and educate our employees and partners so that they know what options are available to people with disabilities.
Don’t forget ear protection.
Note that high noise levels may cause damage to your hearing. Use ear protection. Earplugs are available free of charge at our InfoPoint.
Press passes and photo accreditation
Photographers that want to monitor stage performances and get a spot in front of the stage, need to apply for an accreditation. Generally, photography is allowed in front of the stage during the first three songs of the act. Applications for accreditations must be made no later than July 3rd 2018.
Due to the fact that the number of photographers in direct connection to the stage is limited, Landskronakarnevalen reserves the right to make a selection among the accreditation requests together with our co-organizer.
LISA (Landskrona Idrottsföreningars Samorganisation) helps with crew and service at the bicycle parking and the toilets. In return they receive a compensation, that goes directly to their respective organisations. Gunnar Nilsson, Chairman of LISA, does a great job of coordinating this work so that young people and adults get the opportunity to help their association. LISA’s website: landskronaidrotten.nu.
Save the environment – use your bike.
We encourage everyone visiting Landskronakarnevalen to take their bike into town. On Slottsparken, behind Landskrona museum, you’ll find a parking space for bicycles which is taken care of by Landskrona’s atheltic clubs.
