Campaigns Field

The Campaigns Field is the centre of politics and protest at the Gathering – bringing together activists and academics, and raising awareness around diverse social and environmental justice issues. Every day is jam packed with discussions and workshops, with up to six sessions happening at once.

The Speakers’ Forum & Radical Cinema occupy a corner of the field, offering in-depth info, inspiration and debate from the likes of Extinction Rebellion founder Roger Hallam and #PlasticFree campaigner Natalie Fee.

You’ll find great places to hang out and discuss the things you care about: the chilled out Cal’s Garden; the recycling-upcycling-waste-minimising Cleam Stream Recycling Centre; Veggies Vegan Catering Campaign and the Food For A Future tent (the BEST veggie burgers are here!). Evenings are owned by the solar-powered Radical Wales DIY open mic stage: come along, have a go!

The field hosts a Workshop Dome with packed programme, a Women’s Tent, Queer Space, Travellerspace, Hedge-U-cation, Solar Sewing with the Campaign For Real Events, South West Against Nuclear, the Exhibition of Resistance and various campaign stalls.

Topics covered in the Campaigns Field include:

  • Environment: climate change, fracking, GM
  • Civil liberties: undercover policing, big data, surveillance
  • International relations: Palestine, the war on terror and the refugee crisis
  • Animal rights: hunting, badger culls, vivisection, veganism
  • Infrastructure: nuclear power, renewable energy, sustainable development

… and a whole heap more besides.
