Festivals are a rich and important part of Ireland’s tourism offering. Festivals bring people together for a collective experience, resulting in large-scale gatherings of hundreds and even thousands of people. This involves organisers in the provision of shelter, accommodation, food, routes, transport, power, lighting, water, sanitation, waste disposal safety, security and of course entertainment!

All of these factors make festivals an interesting space for Climate Action. Festival organisers can trial new engagement opportunities with audiences, work with innovative suppliers and contractors and apply influence and inspiration all the way along the value chain.
