Sustainability at Motel Mozaïque

We believe in an equal world. We care for the environment and the people around us.

As an organisation and festival organiser, we are constantly seeking the best way to impact our planet. In the last years we introduced a green discount, and no longer used disposable plastic during our events. Also we turned 100% vegan. Besides we promote a series of social activities related to sustainability, accessibility and more.

We aim to be an inclusive organisation, with events open for whoever wants to join. We strive to have our events physical accesable, and organize events for audience with a smaller and larger budget. In the past we have given donations to organisations like the Voedseltuin and the Voedselbank, to help local Rotterdammers in need of some extra support.

After different collaborations, we started a new partnership with Kaapse Brouwers focused on social sustainability: together we own a circle of land in the Voedseltuin, where we are starting to grow the ingredients that eventually will be added to the Kaapse MOMO beer.

Every year we participate to the campaign “Geef en Toegift”: the audience can buy a festival ticket for someone who is not able to afford it. This action is promoted in collaboration with Stichting Mano, a charity organisation that locally supports people that are living in poverty or that are socially excluded. With MOMO Festival we collaborate with RotterdamPas, so there’s a discount for everyone who has this pass.


MOMO offers a sustainable menu during its events, where plant based is the norm. We also work a lot with local, seasonal and organic products like Rechtstreex, Mixblik, Saru Soda and Pieter Pot. We use food as efficiently as possible to prevent food waste and we inspire our audience to change their daily habits, as food and drink are a big part of their experience. Since 2022 we turned 100% vegan at the office too.



MOMO is committed to reducing waste and optimising waste processing. We do not see our waste streams as unusable waste, but as raw materials with potential (Reduce, Reuse & Recycle). We facilitate various collection points for raw materials at our own locations. We support our public in the conscious separation of raw materials. Think of clear signing, educational signs and the use of volunteers. Residual flows are used with as much value as possible in a new cycle. We work together with waste processor GroenCollect for this.


MOMO events take place almost entirely at locations that are connected to the fixed power network. As a result, we do not have to use polluting diesel generators. MOMO strives to run its events entirely on green energy. This was successful during MOMO Fabrique 2022: all locations were supplied with green electricity, largely self-generated by solar panels.


Visitors, crew and artists are encouraged to travel by bicycle or public transport as much as possible. We prefer local suppliers in order to limit the number of travel movements, and we use electric driven vans to transport our artists production materials.
During our festivals we give a green discount to people who walk, skate, use public transport or bicycle. With the green discount you get a discount on every drink you order at our bars.


MOMO Festival is the place to try out new greener approaches. The festival as a temporary mini-society that beautifully reflects the city. A unique opportunity for makers to experiment with their innovation during our events!


Motel Mozaïque concluded the Sustainability Deal together with the municipality of Rotterdam, eleven event organisers and Rotterdam Festivals. This sets out the ambition to achieve sustainable objectives over a period of three years. Together we are working to reduce our collective CO2 footprint and we are raising awareness of sustainable developments.
