The Green Gathering
The Green Gathering 2012 will promote and platform sustainable lifestyles by combining education with entertainment, and follows the tradition of environmental and ethically conscious events established in the UK for over 30 years. The gatherings have developed into the main ‘green’ events in Britain if not the world, showcasing future technologies and alternative energy and inspiring people to adopt more sustainable lifestyles. You can anticipate the normal eclectic musical and cabaret content, the superb ethnic British Crafts area, a Healing area incorporating contemporary and cultural holistic therapies, and the most amazing and zaniest Kids area that you’ll ever see on a field. As usual there will be some of the UK’s leading speakers talking in both the Speakers Forum and the Earth Energies area, covering everything from alternative power systems to sustainable lifestyle living, crop circle formations and the power of crystals! We will showcase the latest developments in green technology, with internet cafes, solar showers and extensive entertainment all powered by the wind and the sun. There will be a larger markets area, incorporating ethnic and holistic enterprises of the highest environmental standards with a number of different organic catering establishments. The Green Gathering 2012 aims to encourage people to rethink how they live their lives, to inspire them and their families to recycle, reuse and reduce, to become more self-reliant, to grow their own food, to learn new skills and use public transport, all practical steps to ease the negative impact modern society has on the environment.
