Noorderslag speaker Jeske Eekelaar
Jeske Eekelaar
Green Events Nederland (NL)
I’m a young professional, active in the event sector with a passion for sustainability. I got inspired by different masterclasses during my study Leisure Management at NHTV, what made me decide to go more into the depth of this subject with a graduation research that I carried out for Green Events Netherlands. The research was focused on the waste problem at festival campsites supported by a case study on the events of Extrema: Extrema Outdoor and Solar Weekend. I graduated in June 2015. After this, I started working as a Sustainability Coordinator for Green Events Netherlands. Within this cooperation, I worked on different festivals as for instance Defqon.1, Solar Weekend, Share a Perfect Day and Mysterland carrying out projects from coordinating volunteers within the Celebrate Life program to managing waste. Besides that, I’m involved in the Green Deal – one of Green Events’ projects in which leading Dutch festivals are working towards waste-free festivals. Finally, I’m supporting the platform by sharing knowledge at the website/social media pages and by giving presentations for schools and universities.
