Carbon sequestration for festivals

European Festivals forest

In partnership with Skógræktin, the Icelandic Forest Service


Music, theatre and arts festivals across Europe are working in concert to plant a new Festivals Forest in Iceland with Downy birch, Sitka spruce, Lodgepole pine, Black Cottonwood and Siberian larch. We will plant 2,500 trees per hectare, with seedlings incubated locally.

The Festivals Forest is a carbon sequestration project. It celebrates the power and creativity of the festivals industry coming together to lead a progressive call to climate action. Working with Skógræktin, the Icelandic Forestry Service, gives us the  best value climate action imaginable and a confident and shared path to Net Zero.

This is a long-term project intended to run for centuries. 2022 is our pilot year with pioneer festivals. Please join us.
