If you’re one of the lucky ones joining us at the best music event on the planet by simply buying your Glastonbury ticket, you have already helped us out. How? Every year, Michael Eavis generously sends some of the proceeds from the festival our way, helping us to continue our vital work to protect the planet and transform the lives of the most disadvantaged people that inhabit it.
Greenpeace, Oxfam and WaterAid work around the world in very different ways, but we are united in a common goal to make this world a safer, fairer, more sustainable place to live, for us and for future generations. But we cannot do it without you. Your support has proved invaluable in previous years; please help us again.
Throughout the festival, we will show you how small actions from you can come together to make a world of difference.
Come on over to the Greenpeace field and experience the Arctic that you can help protect. In April, a capsule containing the names of more than 2.7 million Save the Arctic supporters was placed on the seabed beneath the North Pole claiming it for humanity. They remain there as a potent symbol of hope that the area will be declared a global sanctuary, immune to exploitation.
Oxfam is campaigning for humanitarian access into Syria, to ensure life-saving aid can reach those that need it. The conflict has resulted in over 1.3 million people fleeing their homes to seek safety in neighbouring countries. Many of those left behind are displaced from their homes and in desperate need of support. The UK Government is well placed to influence the United Nations to priorities a resolution. Your support will encourage them to act on this responsibility.
Make use of WaterAid’s facilities and visit the stand, and while there, help Pump up the Volume! This petition will be delivered to world leaders to call on them to commit to achieving universal access to water and sanitation. For the first time in history, a world where everyone, everywhere has safe water and sanitation is within reach. If we can encourage governments to pull together, this vision can be realised by 2030.
There’s no need for the poverty and environmental destruction we see around us – please stand up and help us take action.
You’ll also find us working together at the Meeting Point where like minds meet. Here you can hang out with us, leave messages and play games while you wait for a mate.
