The Festival of the Sea will present work which explores sustainability themes; we will Reduce - Reuse – Recycle; and we will work with you – our audience, our partners and suppliers - to encourage good practice.

Walk the Plank has previously worked with Julie’s Bicycle, gaining a 4* Creative Green award for other events. With the Culture House, we plan to use similar strategies for this Festival to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions: from carbon literacy training for our volunteers to reducing our travel and transport needs.

What YOU can do to make a difference this year:

  • Walk, cycle or use public transport to visit the festival – audience travel in cars is the most significant element of the carbon footprint of any festival.
  • Use the WWF Carbon Footprint calculator to assess your environmental impact and take steps to reduce it.
  • Eat less meat
