What do we do?

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. our current project are:

Crock n Rock – washing up service with plates for hire

Greenstage – our drop in chill and chat  space

Cleanstream – recycling and water saving

Serenpod – autism friendly bell tent

Solar sewing – recycled materials and renewable energy
