Clonakilty International Guitar Festival was one of three other Cork festivals chosen by Cork County Council for a pilot programme to support the greening of festivals in the county.
CIGF represented by Kevin McNally and Ray Blackwell, were joined by festival organisers from Youghal Medieval Festival and Timoleague Harvest Festival in a Cork County Council funded initiative, the programme will include training workshops, virtual support sessions and in person support at each of the festivals to assist in the implementation of environmentally friendly initiatives.
The aim of the Green Festivals Pilot Programme is to enable waste reduction at festivals throughout the county and help to support festival organisers in meeting sustainability goals.
“CIGF were delighted to be invited to join this initiative. Sustainability is a fundamental principle of The Clonakilty International Guitar festival. Leaving our community in better shape than we found it is something we strive towards. ”
