Why this festival?

The UN says the climate crisis is a ‘Code Red for Humanity’, to date international action has been seriously inadequate and protests are increasing particularly by the young inspired by Greta Thunberg. Our aim is to empower young people around the world to become change-makers to deliver action on the ground. Enough Blah, Blah, Blah, let's do, do, do!
