The GDCF Model also aims to inspire festivals and other events, and other sectors, cities and regions. Festivals provide a unique opportunity as models for the kind of world we want to live in. Festivals, for instance, can be seen as a model for circular and climate neutral neighbourhoods. How to inspire an inclusive sustainable mini society, which deals with energy, the use of resources, food, mobility, water and nature in a circular, or even regenerative way? Innovations at festivals move quickly since every edition is an opportunity to improve. Next to the technical side, a festival can provide insights into the effects of measures on people living in this mini society, on their values, emotions and behaviours. Cities can learn from the creative approach of festivals to shape inclusive, circular societies. And the power of storytelling and creative innovation helps to communicate ideas, inspire action and connect people. Festivals, with their music and art, know how to emotionally touch visitors, and how to create a new kind of culture and community.
