The Sammersee e.V. organizes every year the Sammersee Benefit Festival. About 30 young people, aged 16-22 years, volunteer their time to organize and implement the event. Every year they choose a non-profit organization to which the proceeds of the festival are donated.
The pillars of sustainability, regionality, inclusion and accessibility form the basis of the entire organisation at all levels. The volunteers work together in small groups to design the festival according to these criteria. These include in particular the selection of food and drink stands, a concept to avoid rubbish, an educational programme for children during the festival, a regional band line-up, the design of the barrier-free festival site, the collection and avoidance of emissions and the open, inviting atmosphere that attracts all age groups to the event.
