GLOBAL GREEN ECOVILLAGE
AN OASIS OF CREATIVITY AND CLIMATE ACTION

Our climate is changing. How will we?

Global Green is a colourful pop-up eco-village of green ideas, merriment, inspiration and action. For over a decade this area, coordinated by Cultivate, the collective based in Cloughjordan Ecovillage, has been the conscious heartbeat of the Electric Picnic. Here you will find activists, artists, makers, musicians, foodies and poets from across Ireland hosting transformational ideas, activities and conversations for all generations.

Find us on the green edge of the festival to revamp your body and mind with fabulous famous toasties from The Market Kitchen, and drinks at the Full of Love Kombucha Bar, and the Revel Coffee Caravan.
Whether you want to dance, eat, save the planet or loosen up and mellow out, Global Green is a must-visit over the festival weekend. With performances, exhibits, art, information and curiosities of all sorts Global Green is a unique festival experience for everyone.
