The Green Gathering Charity promotes environmental sustainability, ecological awareness, biodiversity, human rights, appropriate technology and independent media, through education, communication and the arts
We provide opportunities for learning about renewable energy, low impact living, sustainable food production and responsible use of resource from the perspective that education should be hands-on and fun; we provide environments in which creativity can be applied to ecological and social dilemmas, and we facilitate networking and skill-sharing between individuals and groups working in these areas. We call this Education for Sustainability
The Charity has a number of small projects we manage and fund directly, these projects feed into the larger event and are run by members wishing to volunteer directly for the charity in order to make a hands on contribution to our work.
Onsite at our event we have in past years directly funded free crafts worksops, youth activities and environmental initiatives
