Festival organiser Michael Eavis visited the Copenhagen climate change gathering last week as an ambassador for the UK’s music scene. His visit, organised by the Europe-wide campaign “Play to Stop: Europe for Climate”, included a tour of green initiatives called Hopenhagen and a concert by the Backstreet Boys.
“Climate change threatens us all,” said Michael. “There are huge consequences, and we’re as desperate as anyone else to help solve the problem.
“The message I took to Copenhagen was that we all need to make a contribution in our personal lives to reduce our carbon footprint. We’ve already done quite a lot at the festival but we’d like to do some more, especially introducing more renewable energy.”
