European Festivals forest

carbon capture for arts companies


Arts Festivals across Europe are coming together to plant a forest in Iceland to offset their carbon emissions. The project is run by The European Festivals Forest Foundation, a not-for-profit registered in the Netherlands. Working with Land og Skógur (the Icelandic forest service), gives us the  best value climate action imaginable and a confident and shared path to Net Zero. 

2022 was our pilot year in which the audiences of six festivals together donated 2828 trees. In 2023, we grew to fourteen festivals plús three touring companies, which together will plant over two hectares this spring.

Please join us in 2024!
