NightSchool, funded by the EU, stands as a pioneering beacon, championing emerging creatives in Europe's vibrant nightlife. With the collective efforts of five leading nightlife organizations, it offers an enriching training program, fosters knowledge exchange, and provides online resources, all aimed at nurturing sustainability within our nocturnal culture. Handpicked from across Europe, fifteen participants have been selected to embark on this journey, featuring immersive peer-learning sessions led by industry luminaries in three iconic European venues, including the renowned BASIS KASINO.

Mark your calendars for June 8, 2024, when BASIS Vinschgau Venosta hosts an enlightening day dedicated to environmental sustainability in nightlife. This event warmly welcomes the local community, extending an invitation to all eager creators passionate about nurturing our cultural landscape while forging international connections.

At the heart of our mission lies the recognition that environmental sustainability in nightlife thrives on grassroots initiatives and adaptability. We're committed to fostering a community-driven, hands-on approach to sustainability. How can we integrate sustainability seamlessly into the fabric of club culture? How do we ensure flexibility to accommodate diverse local contexts? Join us as we explore these questions, guided by a practical ethos and fueled by the activist spirit inherent in our cause. 
Together, we'll translate our aspirations into tangible socio-political demands, recognizing that true sustainability is a collective responsibility that transcends individual actions.

How accessible are they? Who is excluded? What kind of activism does nightlife need?
