It feels like the world has changed over the past 12 months and we’re waking up to the unbelievable and almost irreversible damage that humankind has had on the planet and every single species that inhabits this truly magnificent world of ours. We simply can not continue to consume in the way we currently are, and it’s all of our responsibility to act now and make significant changes to our lifestyles to ensure we come together to protect our world, our environment and our future for the next generations.
Our main priority for this year is to focus fully on what we can do within the festival and our audience reach, we have been completely rethinking the event in every aspect to radically reduce the impact. For 2019 and beyond, we are putting the imminent environmental crisis front and centre of our messaging and deep into the fabric of our event planning and infrastructure.
Please see below for a number of schemes, systems and processes we are looking to implement across the entire planning and implementation of the event, (these will be added to throughout the year) as well as ideas and tips on what you can do to help us make the huge changes that are required.
