What is Green Your Festival?

Green Your Festival is an initiative of participating Irish local authorities to improve the environmental performance of events, festivals and destinations in their regions. Greenyourfestival.ie has been set up to provide other local authorities, festivals, events and destinations with support materials and guidance to help them go green.


Who is involved?

With support from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Local Authority Prevention Network (LAPN), several local authorities have been working individually to prevent waste and emissions within their regions for many years.
