Today (11 May) marks the beginning of a week-long festival that will help you live a more sustainable lifestyle.
If you want to do your bit but aren’t sure where to start, or are looking for some easy eco switches you can make without leaving your home, this is the event for you.
The festival organisers say it will ‘be just like Glasto but with cleaner toilets (depending on your motivation to clean during a global pandemic), less mud, fewer (no) tents, music solely of your own choosing and a lot more personal space.’
Running completely online from 11-15 May, you can enjoy all the event has to offer from the comfort of your home.
There will be masterclasses, panel discussions, tutorials and more – and everyone is welcome, from complete beginners to bona fide eco heroes – and the entire event is free.
My Green Pod co-founder Jarvis Smith will give a talk at 11.00 on Tuesday (12 May) about how we can make sustainability go mainstream.
Other highlights include a talk on everyday activism with speakers including the fab Ella Daish (11.00, 11 May); panel discussion ‘Sustainability in the home – where are all the men?’ (16.00, Tuesday 12 May) and ‘How to go on a Plastic Diet’ (10.00, 14 May) with Sisters Against Plastic, who were named Britain’s Greenest Family at 2019’s P.E.A. (People. Environment. Achievement.) Awards.

All the talks will take place on Crowdcast; the events are all listed, so you can either follow the whole channel or pick and choose the events you like the look of. You’ll be sent a reminder when an event you’ve selected is about to go live.
There will be replays, and they will be available on the same link shortly after the live event.
