Creation of the Garden of the Festival "Musica sulle Bocche"

The International Jazz Festival “Musica sulle Bocche”, held in Santa Teresa Gallura since 2001, has always been characterized as a sustainable event by paying great attention to the landscape and the natural environment in which it is located. 

Since this year, the Festival directed by Enzo Favata has decided to formalize its commitment to sustainability by adhering to the manifesto “Take the Green Train”, promoted by the Europe Jazz Network through Julie’s Bicycle Agency, to which the festival of Santa Teresa has brought its meaningful experience.
Through the manifesto, the European jazz cultural organizations commit to adopt practices coherent with sustainability and promote the awareness amongst their audience towards themes linked to safeguarding the environment.   
The association “Jana Project” that organizes Musica sulle Bocche has worked hard throughout the whole year on these grounds by means of  its “green team” and the establishment of collaborations at all institutional levels. 
Monday 9th November, another significant phase of these actions took place: in collaboration with the Forestry Corps of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia a reforestation project has begun, as a form of compensation for the CO2 produced during the Festival. The area designated is in the park near the tower called Torre di Longosardo, facing the Strait of Bonifacio and the beach Rena Bianca, panoramic point from where you can see the cliffs of Bonifacio in Corsica and the islands of the archipelago of the Maddalena. In one of the most beautiful spots of the Mediterranean the “garden of the Festival Musica sulle Bocche will rise and grow, a project which will be carried out during the years by the Forestry Corps and that the Festival will insert as location for the eco-sustainable shows starting from the next edition.   
The initiative of November 9th started at 10:30 am with the presentation of several arboreal species chosen by a team of the Forestry Corps from the Tempio district, the same who will carry out the tree planting in collaboration with the students of the primary school of Santa Teresa Gallura.
The initiative has been organized by Jana Project in agreement with the representatives of the Environment and Culture Board of the Town Council of Santa Teresa Gallura.
