– powered by DAS FEST
The Climate Academy is already in its third edition this year. The Climate Academy - powered by DAS FEST celebrated its premiere in 2019 and also returned to its usual location in the children's and cultural area last year after a two-year break from Corona. Visitors have the opportunity to learn about the topics of sustainability and climate protection at infotainment modules and thus actively contribute to climate protection themselves in the future with environmentally conscious actions in order to leave a livable and healthy planet for future generations.

Sustainability - always a topic at DAS FEST
For many years, DAS FEST Karlsruhe has attached great importance to a holistic sustainability concept, which, in addition to waste avoidance and the use of regional suppliers and partners, also focuses on raising awareness among visitors. The call to travel to FEST in the most climate-friendly way possible has also proven its worth: The popular BGV bicycle parking spaces around the FEST grounds will again be available to visitors to DAS FEST in 2023. And also in 2023, FEST tickets for the main stage are valid as KVV tickets for travel to and from the event.
