Climate Future Festival
Monmouth, 20-26 September 2021
Monmouth’s first Climate Future Festival – the Festival that doesn’t cost the earth – had it all. Addressing the burning issue of our times, the Climate Emergency, the Festival consisted of 99 events over seven days – debates, presentations from inspirational speakers, thought provoking films and discussions, children’s activities, ways of protecting the natural environment on which we all depend, ways of working with and communicating with nature (and with ourselves), ways in which we can ensure a sustainable food supply, repairing, recycling and upcycling, ways of attending to our well-being.
Informative and Fun
It was a great coming together of the community concerned with making our world a better place for us and for Future Generations, reducing and repairing the environmental damage that we are causing, and at the same time having fun. It brought much hope to all, and great ideas of what we can all do in our daily lives to lower the carbon footprint of our community.
Building on the Success
We have already started planning on the next festival. The world is in a Climate Emergency and each of us must do what we can to reduce our carbon footprint.
We are looking for more Monmouth residents to step up and help us organize the next festival. If you want to be involved, even in a limited capacity, please complete the form below.
We are very grateful to Hepburn Photography and Rachel Lilly Photography for allowing us to use their wonderful photos.
