Milan Meyberg is a Dutch Sustainability Strategist, Keynote Speaker and award winning Concept Developer who works for well-known global brands and festivals.
With nearly 20 years of experience in the electronic music industry, he was one of the first in the Netherlands to utilize festivals as living labs to solve climate-change issues, and spearheaded this industry's vast creativity to tackle environmental challenges. Most notably he developed and implemented concepts to create the world's most sustainable festival (DGTL) based on the tenets of a circular economy, and received numerous accolades and awards for his work.
Currently (feb 2021) he is developing beyond sustainable "regenerative" concepts for "Eco-Restoration" events and communities, reaching out to a global audience of like minded "Solarpunks" through vlogs, blogs, lectures, keynotes and the occasional DJ performance. When he is not traveling, you can find him at his Tiny House at "Basecamp IJmuiden" (Amsterdam Beach), or tending to his rare heirloom crops at his semi-automated "Symbioculture" urban farmin Amsterdam.
Topics: Sustainability, circularity, climate change, events, millennials.
Presentation 1: Creating the world's first circular festival: DGTL
(The development and realization of the world's first circular Festival: DGTL)
Dutch festivals are often compared to small towns. A year of preparation equates to just one or two production days, where a million turnover depends on a smooth course.
Everyone knows the images of thousands of people partying, but unknown to many are the sustainability issues that the visitors create, and how similar these are to those of cities. Issues in the field of food supply, infrastructure, energy systems, waste management, logistics, sanitation, safety and noise. Many problems arise and they all need to be addressed properly. But how does a festival like DGTL solve these issues based on a zero-waste approach? And how can the tested circular solutions serve as an example outside the festival?
In its keynote, Milan will present the many social and technological innovations that the festival has implemented towards circular systems. He gives both practical and pragmatic examples and shows how these innovations can also be applied in other sectors, companies and even entire cities.
Issues: How do we provide (green) energy and healthy food with clean sanitary facilities for more than 45,000 people? How do we minimize waste and at the same time ensure efficient logistics? How do we combine freedom and pleasure with safety and sustainability? How do we create a zero-emission environment that promotes and facilitates sustainable behavior? How can DGTL's insights be applied to other organizations, events, companies, locations or entire cities?
Presentation 2: The state of the planet, where we’re heading (and how not to panic).
In this 60 minute minute futurist keynote, Milan Meyberg presents some of today’s most urgent topics in unique and jaw-dropping ways. He covers the current state of our planet, and outlines intriguing near future scenarios with possible far reaching implications for mankind.
Starting off in the Renaissance era, he skillfully moves the audience through the industrial age, guiding them far into the anthropocene and glimpses at a possible “second renaissance”. He covers topics such as climate change, changes in biosphere, information transmission, social revolutions, energy systems, the growth of the technosphere, the and how unforseen technological combinations will affect us in ways many of us would not dream possible.
In short, Milan’s presentation is action packed with forward thinking information and many eye-openers (or eye-closers) that will make you wonder if in 20 years time you’ll find yourself saying: “Damn, he was right… glad I didn’t panic.”
