DGTL Festival: a festival with a green twist

The planet is suffering, and it’s our fault. The extent of the problem is often under-estimated, and it can be hard to convince society to change its habits of excessive consumption.

Enter the DGTL Festival! The DGTL Revolution initiative is intended to raise awareness of environmental concerns via actions focused on sustainable development and protecting the ecosystem.
