Greening events

Thousands of festivals take place across Ireland every year. Both local and national festivals are amazing opportunities to learn and educate about waste prevention.

Reducing impact

Festivals and events provide major social, financial and cultural benefits to Ireland’s people, they can also have significant environmental impacts. 

A large part of the work of LAPN involves supporting local and national events reduce their environmental impact. Through the Green Your Festival initiative, many events and destinations have already been greened in partnership with the local authorities in their regions.

Promoting positive action

Festivals and events can act as an excellent platform to get people thinking and talking about the environment and our impact.

Through cultural events, artists and organisers can help shape our conversation about climate and can lead by example.
