Festival Information

Green Gathering 2013 Overview

The Green Gathering follows the tradition of environmentally and ethically conscious events that have been known for over 30 years. These gatherings developed into the main ‘green’ events in Britain, if not the world, showcasing future technologies, alternative ways of life and inspired many people to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle before Green Living became mainstream.

Green Gathering 2013 Event Info

A busy team of experienced environmental event organisers are excited to announce The 2013 Green Gathering, August 1st - 4th, located at picturesque Piercefield Park of Chepstow, Monmouthshire.

The Green Gathering follows the tradition of environmentally and ethically conscious events that have been known for over 30 years. These gatherings developed into the main ‘green’ events in Britain, if not the world, showcasing future technologies, alternative ways of life and inspired many people to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle before Green Living became mainstream.

The Green Gathering promotes and platforms sustainable lifestyles through combining education with entertainment.

Powered by renewable energy it will also host lively family gathering favourites including ethical markets, organic catering, speakers and films, music and cabaret stages, healing and holistic therapies as well as a variety of esoteric alternatives, traditional British crafts and workshops. There will naturally be a very fun, creative, energetic children’s area. At The 2013 Green Gathering families are invited to play and learn together, relax and have fun.

The gathering is inclusive and accessible with a specialist area with a team of dedicated people that will be able to assist with additional and specialised needs. The first ever Transition Area will network the Transition Towns movement and showcase local initiatives started by groups of people nationwide for the benefit of their community and for the environment, raising local awareness of the inevitable result of climate change and the end of cheap abundant oil.

The Green Gathering aims to encourage people to rethink how they live their life’s and to inspire them and their families to recycle, reuse and reduce, to become more self-reliant, to grow their own food, to learn a new skill and use public transport, all small practical steps to ease the negative impact modern society is having on the environment.

Have you room in your car for another passenger? Life’s a journey – share it! Why not consider car sharing to Green Gathering this year?

With the average 100 mile car journey leading to over 20 kg of CO2 being produced, goCarShare has the potential to reduce the festival’s carbon footprint considerably.

It’s a great way to save money if you are driving and, as it is built around Facebook, you can see if your friends are going, find like-minded people to travel with, and check people out before agreeing to share.

‘By travelling in a full car, festival-goers carbon emissions become comparable to taking the train…… so it can make a real difference.’ (Source: DEFRA Report)
So if you’re driving, or need a lift, share the journey!
