The 10th edition of the Mikser Festival will be held from 24 to 26 May 2019, throughout Dorćol, Belgrade.
This year’s festival is held under the slogan “Cirkuliši”, and is dedicated to sustainable development as a new culture and work and the launching of the Platform for the circular economy in Serbia.
More than 500 participants are expected, the organisers announced.
It was announced that guests of the festival will be famous innovator from Belgium, the author of the concept of the blue economy, Gunter Pauli, the driving force of the circular economy in Slovenia and Central and Eastern Europe Ladeja God Košir, the Deputy Mayor of Ljubljana, Tjaša Ficko and Rambo Amadeus, the environmental activist and constructors of the first Balkan solar powered sailboats.
The representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Steliana Nedera, said that the circular economy aims to produce more products with fewer reusable resources.
“We have decided to focus on plastics, textiles, furniture and food waste sectors,” said Ms Nedera.
She invited young designers to apply for the competition until 20 February and offer their sustainable solutions for better use of resources.
