LET’S WORK TOGETHER
For a Bigger, Better, Cleaner, Greener, Fairer Glastonbury
As Glastonbury parties into its fourth decade, our commitment to making the world a cleaner, greener, fairer place continues this year with our charity partners focussing on the real essentials of life. To keep you dancing ‘til the early hours, and in relatively good health under the circumstances, Glastonbury provides enormous quantities of good food and clean water but even in the lush valley of Worthy Farm, this can be tricky. Fortunately, Glastonbury’s charity partners are experts at providing clean water and healthy food in much more remote and inaccessible locations.
WaterAid are here to refresh thirsty revellers and to make your festival toilet experience a pleasant one. The she-pees are located by the Pyramid stage, and you’ll find their VIP latrines in the Kings Meadow. Go along and join the Loo Queue and help increase the pressure on governments to stop ignoring the billions of people living without clean water and sanitation.
Meanwhile, Greenpeace are asking for clean water on an oceanic scale. Remember the big oil spill last year? Greenpeace are working to make this the last year when you’ll be able to say that, and saving up to buy the Rainbow Warrior III, our new, high-tech flagship to keep an eye on those pesky oil companies and the pirate fishing fleets stealing the world’s seafood.
Almost a billion people are still going hungry in a world which produces more than enough for everyone. Rising food prices, incompetent politicians and climate change are making things worse. Oxfam thinks that the system is bust. This year you can be an action-taking, party-loving, vintage-shopping system-fixer – collar the Oxfam campaigners in hot pink T-shirts or visit the Oxfam tents across Glastonbury to help us fix it.
Everything’s connected – clean water, healthy food, unpolluted ecosystems, your Glastonbury ticket. Come and find out how you’ve been helping us to help these important international causes, and how they’re helping you. Thank you for working with us.
