ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL 2010
JUNE 2010

This year there are some great additions to last year’s eco plan for the Festival, notably the introduction of a solar powered stage in our newly created eco/chill out area in the arboretum, as well bringing the climate change exhibition Hard Rain to the festival site. The exhibition is based around the Bob Dylan lyrics from Hard Rain’s A Gonna Fall. We also linked with The British Council, Britain’s international cultural relations body, as an ongoing environmental partner for the work we do at the festival. You can see all of this year’s initiatives by visiting the official Isle of Wight Festival website, Eco Action Partnership page. And......Sir Paul McCartney gave us his official stamp of approval for all our eco efforts.

Road to Copenhagen

 

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has chosen Eco Action Partnership to create an awareness campaign within the culture sector ahead of the global summit on Climate Change in Copenhagen, at the beginning of December. 

 

The result, a series of three gigs in London during October and November, chosen for their diverse audience mix in which to drive awareness of the governments ambitious global deal to succeed the Kyoto Protocol. 

 

The first of these was Franz Ferdinand at O2 Academy Brixton where the audience was engaged by a video booth in the bar area where they could record their own message to Ed Miliband or write messages of support on the graffiti wall in the foyer. The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre was the next stop on the awareness campaign where two of the bars were branded with the Act on Copenhagen logo and info points manned by DECC employees, on hand to give out relevant climate change information. Details of the next gig will be announced soon.
