Finally we’ll all be back in the field after such a long time away, with our community-led sustainability festival celebrating culture, creativity, and climate action. In the inspiring setting of Cloughjordan Ecovillage, the team behind Global Green at the Electric Picnic, Sustainable Ireland Co-operative, and Cloughjordan residents have collaborated with the aim of creating a family-friendly celebration of regenerative culture.

Coming back to face-to-face events, we’re all rediscovering the joy of gathering and celebrating together. Let’s also re-imagine how our communities can be vibrant places to live that bring about positive change and are prepared for future challenges.

We'll need: collaboration, arts & expression, music & dance, food sovereignty, community resilience, renewable energy, climate justice, traditional crafts & skills, open-source design, circular economy, decentralised economies and governance, meaningful livelihoods…These are some of the Elements of Change.

More Information:
Amphitheatre performances against the backdrop of a community farm. Locally sourced, organic food - priced to be affordable while still fair to the producers.
Planning for future events and generations with a three-year goal of being a fossil-fuel-free festival that pays all artists, integrates train tickets, and offsets carbon through forestry and farm meitheals on the Ecovillage land.

This festival focuses on community and as a participant of the festival, you are the community!
Be part of discussions, offer a workshop in Open Space slots, bring
instruments, talents, get involved in meitheals, host your own conversation cafes,
mingle in the diversity of the festival and then share your insights.

There's a train directly to Cloughjordan but with limited times (and must be booked in advance online), see Irish Rail.
Here's a spreadsheet for lift-sharing, carpooling and hitch-hiking...remeber those ol' ways of getting from A to B?!

The principles of zero waste, sustainable transport and a local economy are all central to the festival. The programme allows for arrivals and departures on the train so please consider leaving the car at home (or consider car-pooling  if you’re driving - limited parking is available). We strongly encourage you to bring your own crockery, and enjoy the delicious food on offer from our ecosystem of growers, chefs and artisan bakers.
