This year at The Green Gathering we’re offering something completely unique.
Along with hosting a solar powered off-grid festival as part of our mission to inspire low-impact living, political activism has always been at the core of what Green Gathering is about (you can learn more about our incredible backstory here). Because true sustainability goes beyond ‘being green’ – it’s about fixing injustices and inequalities locally and globally too.
Seeing those willing to take action stand up and put their energy, bodies and freedom on the line has been a rare positive story in these times of climate and democratic crisis. From the awe-inspiring youth movement to protesters with decades of experience who’ve never quite put down their picket signs, many thousands are rising to demand change.
To recognise this activism and the critical importance of engaging with the swelling climate and social justice movement, this year we’re offering 20 free tickets to 20 remarkable people, to highlight and say thank you to those who have been willing to stand up for the least powerful or privileged among us.
And we want to hear from you.
If you know someone, UK-based, who’s been out there fighting to support a cause, from the climate emergency to LGBTQIA+ rights and everything in between, nominate them to receive a ticket. You can do this any time up to March 14th by messaging us on social media or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In your message, tell us
- Their name
- A description of what they’ve done and a link/image supporting it
- A way for us to get in contact with them to check they’re happy to be nominated, and to send a ticket if they’re selected*
This free ticket will be exactly that – a thank you for the energy the activists have put into their climate justice or social action, with no other strings attached. But we’ll give these people the opportunity to come together at the festival in an informal event – so they can meet others doing what they’re doing too.
*Once nominees have been verified and contacted for consent, 20 names will be picked at random from a hat – because there’s no way we could compare or judge the amazing activities of those standing up for what’s right and for all our futures.
