    Global Green at Electric Picnic

       Global Green is the sustainability area of Electric Picnic that
      Cultivate have coordinated annually since 2008. The area  
      provides a platform for over 30 civil society organisations and
      collectives to raise awareness, share information and
      highlight sustainability actions, through displays, activities,
      talks, music and community connections.

      At the 2018 festival we made the Sustainable Development
      Goals (SDGs) and climate action the focus of all of our
      activities in the area.

VillageHall2017Global Green is the conscious heartbeat of the Electric Picnic, where you’ll find activists, artists, makers, musicians, foodies, poets and over 30 groups from across Ireland. Join us on the green edge of the festival to experience brilliant new music, eat glorious local food and encounter transformational ideas and conversations for a healthy and resilient future.

At the heart of the Global Green is the Village Hall. Here we serve up an eclectic mix of live music, dance, DJs, and talks. Some of our previous highlights include, Saint Sister, Lethal Dialect (aka Paul Alwright), Hozier and even Michael D Higgins!


Eat, get inspired and add your voice at the SpeakEATsy tent, a solar powered heady brew of food, poetry, compelling conversations and music. Experience a rich programme of talks and discussions focused on climate action and the Global Goals, peppered throughout with spoken word and music.

Rest your weary roots and shoots in our community garden, which surprises and delights with its eclectic collection of art and snug seating for you to watch the festival go by. In 2019 the garden will be inspired by the Global Goals, bringing perennial issues of concern into our awareness.


Over 30 organisations - including Irish Aid, Concern, Leargas, Self Help Africa, the Tipperary Energy Agency and Young Friends of the Earth, highlighted topics such as sustainable development, community energy, solar, bicycle culture, up-cycling and reuse, climate action and community gardening & agriculture, all framed in the Global Goals and climate response.
