This year’s event will feature climate talks, series of talk sessions featuring climate thought leaders on varied climate change issues on the sidelines of the festival as well as at its Eco Fan Action Village at the festival grounds. Talents performing at the festival will also be making pledges in between performances to highlight specific climate issues as well as calling on our young audience to commit to a clean future.
Already and since last year, the WILDALAND festival have been committed to reducing carbon emissions by running the daily Shuttle service as well running water refill stations to encourage the use of re-usable/re-fill bottles at the festival location.
