Last year’s Great Big Green Ideas – organised by our friends at A Greener Festival – attracted a huge number of ideas to make festivals greener. So they’ve decided to run it again, with two goodie bags up for grabs – each stuffed full with exclusive festival crew T-shirts, CDs, DVDs and other festival memorabilia.
In 2009, travel was the top topic – with many sugesstions on how to improve public transport access – with rubbish and discarded waste not far behind. Several people also pointed out that lots of energy is being produced at festivals and suggested using the heat or kinetic energy created – “How about a Glasto gym where the pedal power created on exercise bikes is used to create electricity?”.
So, now they need your GREAT BIG GREEN IDEAS for 2010. How do you think festivals can get greener? If you have an idea then please submit this (in less than 200 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Saturday May 15th 2010 – in the English language please.
You can submit more than one idea but please make sure you do include your name and put the words ‘Great Big Green Idea’ in the subject box. The judges’ decision will be final and the winner and one runner up will win goodie bags.
The best ideas will be published on this site in June and the ideas will also be circulated to all of the festivals participating in the Greener Festival Awards scheme 2010.
