MADRID HOSTED THE WORLDPRIDE 2017 NEXT TO FLUGE AUDIOVISUALS AND LIGHT PROJECT
From the 23rd of June to the 2nd of July, Madrid hosted a new edition of the LGTBI Pride. This year was bigger than ever as the city was chosen to host the World Pride International Celebration. The Community of Madrid and the City of Madrid relied on Fluge Audiovisuales and Light Project to provide audio-visual equipment as well as assembling the scenes in the city center where the performances and activities of the LGTBI Pride were held. Hundreds of thousands of Madrilenians and tourists from all over the world gathered in the Spanish capital in what was one of the biggest events in the country.
In addition to the assembly of audio-visual materials for the different events of the World Pride 2017, an environmental sustainability strategy was also created.
The strategy included a waste management plan that installed numerous ecological islands, green points and container reinforcements around all areas where concerts and performances were offered. Chemical baths were also installed throughout the center and the use of reusable glasses was implanted in spaces of special environmental interest.
In addition, the reduction of noise and light pollution was ensured with the audiovisual media supplied. The generators used were from the 3rd RANGE, which incorporate the most advanced environmental quality standards on electricity consumption, sound insulation and emissions of gases and particulates.
All the zones of stages had spaces reserved for the accessibility of people with reduced mobility. Mobility was facilitated by extending the hours of public transport during the days of celebration.
Finally, there was an environmental volunteer team in charge of the tasks of citizen awareness and support in waste management. For this we also had an advertising campaign aimed at attendees of the event.
Light Project, together with the City of Madrid, has committed to make a report in which to assess the environmental impact of the event.
