Motto: “Leave No Trace”
The Glastonbury Festival is an excellent example demonstrating how a little additional attention and care could make a tremendous difference in the world we are creating around us.
Wikipedia tells us that the “Glastonbury [festival] is the largest greenfield festival in the world, and is now attended by around 175,000 people, requiring extensive infrastructure in terms of security, transport, water, and electricity supply. The majority of staff are volunteers, helping the festival to raise millions of pounds for good causes.”
Indeed in 2013 Glastonbury raised over 2 million pound for charity purposes.
We can also learn from the same source that “the festival retains vestiges of … traditions, such as the Green Fields area, which includes sections known as the Green Futures and Healing Fields.”
What a brilliant opportunity it is bringing so many like-minded people together promoting good purposes.
Now it worth to read the fresh post about the reality and aftermath of such a great event this year.
And imagine if those who are careless now, would spend not more than half a minute to think about the Green Field and Futures of Glastonbury.
For example the organizers of the festival could encourage festival goers to donate their unnecessary sleeping bags, tents for some perk so that these items could be delivered to corners of the world where they have high value.
