We have already had seven festivals pick up their Greener Festival Awards. At the Festival Congress in Cardiff this weekend three UK festivals, Wood, Shambala Festival and Nozstock picked up their winners certificates from our Assessors Livvy Drake and Penny Mellor, Bev Hewes from our sponsor Robertson Taylor W&P Longreach and our very own Helen Innes, whilst over at ADE Green at the Amsterdam Dance Event our Assessor Isja Dominicus and Paul Schurink from Green Events Nederlands were on hand to pass on our congratulations and certificates to four Dutch festivals, Extrema Outdoor, DGTL Festival, Mysterland and Welcome to the Future. As part of the Awards scheme fifty trees were planted in the Festival Wood in Dundreggan, Scotland, a lasting testimonial to all of our entries’ green efforts in 2014 and which now has more than 1,000 trees planted. End of the Road‘s fantastic 2014 audience scheme which has resulted in the planting of another 719 trees won its own award at the Festival Congress Awards.
