Methods used by the OpenMind Project
Adopts a common language, integrate our principals into our organization
Since the beginning, all the OpenMind festival organizers have received a list of eco-responsible norms for organizers which resumes the actions described in the 2015 Sustainable OpenMind Plan.
Training sessions have also been given to all coordinators, directors and supervisors of the festival during which all notions touched upon in this plan have been presented and discussed.
Following this training, each director has been put in charge of organizing a training session on the Sustainable OpenMind for their team members, so that all involved in the organization might adopt the same language and integrate the sustainability plan in each of their actions.
A follow-up is then made by the environmental committee throughout the organization process in order to provide support to the organizers in taking the actions necessary to follow our plan for a Sustainable OpenMind 2015.
