Waste and littering
The waste management of the European Championships 2022 shall be environmentally friendly. We aim to achieve the highest possible recycling rate of the waste generated. The use of reusable tableware should also reduce the overall amount of waste. Furthermore, measures should be taken to keep littering at the event site as low as possible, such as water dispensers, accreditations made of ocean plastic and, among other things, the decision to forgo a printed programme brochure. Instead, we’ll rely on electronic documents and a modern event app.
Inclusion and accessibility
In order to make the event venues accessible and experienceable for as many guests as possible, we’ve incorporated a high proportion of wheelchair-accessible sports venues. In addition, people with disabilities and the National Disabled Sports Association will be involved in the organisational structure of the European Championships 2022 and thus an inclusion committee will be implemented.
Tickets for people with disabilities are already available for purchase in the ticket shop, which offers free add-ons such as sign language interpreters or headsets with audio description. On site near these separate seats will be volunteers from the "inclusion" team, some of whom can sign.
