The Festival of the Earth will take place from July until October 2021 across the Wakefield District. Wakefield Council has declared a climate emergency and aims to have Net Zero carbon emissions by 2030. Through a high profile festival with a range of events and activities opportunities will be created to encourage local communities to engage with and learn more about how they can help to improve the environment and contribute to tackling climate change.
Building on 2019's Festival of the Moon, which saw 30,000 people experiencing an inspiring programme of activity, world leading voices will be brought to Wakefield. At its heart, Festival of the Earth is about encouraging a debate about the challenges we face so that individuals and communities can active improvements to their local environment and way of life.
