Start thinking about next year's festival! Here are five simple steps to get involved:

1. Plan an event: What activity could you hold? This as a chance to do something a little bit unusual, perhaps that project you have been wanting to try for a while.

2. Let us promote your event: Send your event details to

·           Event name and description

·           Date and location

·           Direct link to the event on your website for further details and bookings

3. Cross promote: To assist with cross promoting events, please include the festival logo and website url on any promotion that you do for your event.

4. Encourage others to get on board: Encourage your neighbouring councils and other organisations who provide sustainability education in your area to get involved. Or send their contact details to and we can get in touch with them.

5. Tell us how it went: After the event, please let us know about your success - number of attendees, maybe a photo or 2, and any evaluation.
