Party like there's no tomorrow is out!
Celebrate the future! Code of Conduct for a sustainable club culture
The "Zukunft Feiern!" Code of Conduct was developed jointly by club operators, event organizers and the Clubtopia initiative. With the sustainability code, the signing clubs commit themselves to more climate and environmental protection. "Zukunft Feiern!" contains binding goals for ecological and social sustainability as well as practicable suggestions for measures that can be flexibly adapted to the reality of the respective club.
The Code of Conduct for sustainable club culture was published in 2021 in Berlin by the Clubtopia initiative. Since 2022, the network "Future Celebrate!" - sponsored by the Initiative Musik - has also been expanding into other German regions. Currently, clubs and venues in Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen and Cologne can sign the Code of Conduct. More information is available on the website www.zukunft-feiern.de
On 13.06.23 the Böse Buben e.V. committed to the "Code of Conduct for a sustainable club culture". This entails some obligations, but we are well on the way to being able to comply with them:
We are actively committed to climate-friendly nightlife
Thanks to the association Clubliebe e.V., we are persistently working our way through the Green Club Guide, the association's online guide to environmentally friendly club operations, which is committed to climate-friendly nightlife.
Through the cooperation of BUND e.V. and Clubliebe e.V., we received free advice as a result of an extensive club inspection.
Since then, we have not only carried out interior insulation, but are also retrofitting our club to be "smart" so that we can keep a better eye on consumption and power guzzlers. In this way, we are not only reducing the burden on the environment, but also on our employees. Of course, we obtain electricity from renewable sources - but unfortunately we can't change the pre-installed oil heating system. Instead, our radiators are controlled "smartly", thus significantly reducing consumption.
Some of the windows have been replaced - and each one has been sealed in the reveal. When a window is opened, the nearby radiator switches off for a short time - and when it is switched on again, the window is closed again.
It almost goes without saying that the club's lighting is all LED.
Of course we separate our garbage – and we just started to collect the bottle caps, because they can be recycled separately, we support the social project QUEERHOME* of the Sonntags-Club, a project that takes care of the needs of queer homeless people with two social workers. Especially this group has a hard time, because they feel excluded from all sides, even within the queer community!
This project is unique in Germany and has been funded by the Berlin Senate with two positions and an office, but so far receives no further funding for the personal needs of those seeking advice and therefore relies on donations.
As silly as it sounds: our floor is vegan! That, at least, is what it says on the packaging. In addition, we have just invested in new fire extinguishers that contain BIO foam – and we are greening the house fade with wild and real wine!
