BIG Green Week 2013

The UK’s festival of eco ideas, art and entertainment is back in the centre of Bristol from 15th to 23rd June

With over 120 events in 9 days, nearly half of which are free, there will be something for everyone. Join more than 40,000 visitors who will start early and stay late to enjoy nine days of inspiring talks, workshops, art, music, poetry, comedy and films.

Bristol BIG Green Week will be selling tickets on the door for all events that are not sold out, taking Stirling and Bristol Pounds, but buying an online ticket in advance to avoid disappointment at popular shows is strongly recommended.

You have until the start of the Festival at midnight this Friday (14th June) to buy a Festival Discount Pass and save yourself money.

The State of Nature Question Time event has already sold out, and tickets are very limited for Richard Branson & Charles Eisenstein. Tickets are also starting to become limited for George Clarke - an evening discussion on what next for politics and the environmental movement.

However, tickets are still available for the excellent Schumacher Lectures: Beyond Sustainability - Towards a Regenerative Economy. This day of Schumacher Lectures (15th June, 10am - 5pm) will map out steps towards regenerative development - in the context of climate change, urban futures, environmental policy and new approaches to ethics in a deeply materialist world.

Speakers are among those leading this movement - cities expert Herbert Girardet; Satish Kumar - editor of Resurgence & Ecologist; Jane Davidson, former Welsh minister of environment; Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition movement; Mary Clear of Incredible Edible Todmorden; European planner Michael Schwarze-Rodrian, Carbon Coach Dave Hampton and poet Matt Harvey.

Cost: £35 (£25 concessions and members of the Schumacher Society, £10 for full-time students under 25.)

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
