Whiplashed at 28
Heidi Peteresen is a volunteer at Roskilde Festival. One afternoon in August five years ago, her life changes from one second to the next. She is hit by a drunk driver. Heidi injures her head profusely. In that instant everything is taken away from her. The community surrounding Roskilde Festival becomes a very important part of Heidi’s recovery and attempt at winning her life back. And less than five years after her accident, Heidi is back helping the festival become greener.
A 13.4 Meters Long Mobile Dishwasher
This year, Roskilde Festival took an important step in the fight against plastic waste and for a more circular business model at festivals. From this year’s festivals, a completely new and sustainable recycled plastic glass, developed by Carlsberg in collaboration with NorthSide, Tinderbox, Roskilde festival and GREEN, was introduced.
The new glass is made from polypropylene and can be washed onsite in Tuborg’s mobile dishwasher until worn down. It is expected that the glasses will endure 25 uses before sending the material back to the supplier for recycling. This film shows how volunteers fill and empty the enormous dishwasher.
