The Cultivate Centre are presenting ideas for a cooler earth at this years Electric Picnic!

For those of you who not in the know Electric Picnic is quite simply the best music festival to hit our green shores! This year the festival is on from 29th – 31st August in the lush grounds of Stradbally Hall in Co. Laois!

The focus of Cultivates Global Green is to Rethink, Redress, Reform & Re-engage environmental issues and climate change.

The forum for these events is the eco-cool Global Green at the Electric Picnic where festival punters can slowdown and take in some good organic food, eco beats, and reflect on a better world.

This year The Cultivate Centre are bringing together a collection of leading edge organisations artists, designers, thinkers to creatively explore a more just and sustainable world.

The hub of The Global Green is the Cultivate dome, which will see a packed schedule of films, new media, world-café, world-music, discussions and talks around the very hot issues of energy scarcity and our shifting climate.

As always the themes are geared towards proactive, positive responses, and looking at ways to adapt and change our behaviour to the changing environment.

  • Rethink.. the future and the way we live.
  • Redress.. ideas for ethical fashion.
  • Reform.. the latest in eco-design.
  • Re-engage.. artists and designers come together around critical issues.
Electric Picnic is the highlight of our summer festival season, the music is great and the ethos of the festival is even better! 

Now in it’s 5th year, Electric Picnic is paving the way for sustainable, carbon neutral music & lifestyle festivals in Ireland.

This year EP08  have worked with a number of environmental groups and consultancies, including CultivateFriends of the Earth and Ecocem, to begin the process of creating a Carbon Responsible Electric Picnic. Offset providers will also be on site, providing information to festival goers on the footprint of the festival and our own associated footprint, and strategies to reduce and offset this.

EP08 are offsetting the emissions caused by the festivals energy consumption, using high quality, independently verified emission reductions (Offsets) available, generated in Ireland by Ecocem.
