Overview


Replenish

Replenish Earth is the philosophy of living in harmony with nature; it is
a cause and a collective action to protect the global commons - the natural resources we all share.  

 



The Replenish economy is founded on the principles of the World Replenish Index, a market place which transcends and includes GDP to 100% compostable products conscious of our environmental impact. Through the WRI, we investigate the impact of our waste disposal habits beyond national borders and positively reinforce behaviours and businesses that are aligned with this.

REPLENISH EVENT and festival GUIDE

 

To be a net Positive Event to the Environment.

Replenish is a worldwide movement to give back more than we take from planet earth. Replenish supports and facilitates sustainable, social businesses and invests towards a green, circular economy. Net positive is naturally amongst their themes of Replenishment, as are Green Impact Investment and infrastructure that is in harmony with nature. For events, Replenish follows ISO 20121, an event sustainability management system. This year we are collaborating with Replenish to bring this into practice of our event.  These are in two sets, the first is for management, the second for artists, here’s how before, during and after the exhibition.

 

Points of Consideration for Management:

Core values of Replenishment should be communicated internally and externally.
These should include the following:

  1. All locations for the events, workshops and installations to be inspected for the adoption of these new practices, giving back more to nature, reforestation and building systems for recurring benefits to the environment.  To reduce Carbon emissions over the entire supply chain.

  2. Aim to achieve no waste, where nothing goes to landfill. All items are documented for collection, segregation and resources are upcycled where appropriate.

  3. Aim to achieve zero Carbon through the supply chain and procurement stages of the exhibition design and implementation stage. Create a vision document to develop a sustainability plan of where to source materials and the sequestration of Carbon where required.  

  4. Energy use for the entire event to be mapped and kept to a minimum, where possible renewable sources of electricity to be used (seek sponsorship from a solar tech company for example, which can later be left available for use afterwards).

  5. Water use for the events to be measured and where available, clean drinking water provided to attendees to refill their water bottles. No catering to be provided in plastic containers or carriage. A design of a cloth bag is appropriate and may be sold on site, or encouragement of refillable glass water bottles, containers for food which may be taken home as a momento.

  6. Public transport to be used for the event where possible, walkable routes designed between installations and events. Cycles made available for rental during the exhibition. Electric vehicles and coaches may be hired/sponsored for the event to move large numbers of passengers if required for site visits.

  7. Where possible, local community support given through fair trade and community interaction in the event.  

  8. All exhibitors and partner organisations to maintain the values of Replenishment pre, during and post-events.

  9. Full transparency and communication of sustainability mapping to take place, ready to show accountability to the local environment and to provide documents and feedback online.

  10. During the planning and procurement stages of the exhibition build in sustainable material re-usability. Post event plans drafted for any material intensive installations to be used to serve the local community.


Points of Consideration for Artists/ Designers:

  1. Conceptualising ideas in sync with the concept of “Giving Back more than we Take”

  2. Participants are welcome to address the concept of Human Psychology behind hiding waste or in contrast becoming oblivious to waste around us.

  3. Deciding on material such that each material has an afterlife, either in the form of the whole installation or as parts, thus thinking about the entire supply chain. The festival has a policy of no plastic bags, as an alternative, cloth bags are encouraged.    

  4. The installation itself is encouraged to be the “Reincarnation”of the material, energy and water being used. (Encouraging the Idea of Waste →  Resource)

  5. Identifying sources of materials and procuring material from fair trade activities.

  6. Identifying channels for the material to be reused after the end of the festival.

  7. Collaborating with Co-participants and other Artists/ Designers to reuse each other’s discarded/ previously used material, composting and documenting their waste and how it has been converted into a resource.

  8. Apart from the festival management, it is each Artist/ Designer’s responsibility to keep their space clean. (Proper Waste Segregation and Disposal Systems will be provided)

  9. Innovative ways of energy consumption possibilities are encouraged.

  10. Every participant is encouraged to leave the city of the evnt a bit better than they found it. Involving local communities where possible, in the education and awareness towards Replenishing the Earth.
