Let’s set the scene. It was the summer festival season, and the Ecotricity Team were busy prepping for TWO festivals on ONE weekend. Our mission was to educate music lovers on why they should switch to green, vegan energy.

Half the team headed to WOMAD, near Malmesbury, Wiltshire and the others set up base at Vegan Camp Out, near Bicester, Oxfordshire.

The weather didn’t disappoint! Of course being a music festival, sunshine and showers are needed. More importantly, we succeeded in our mission by talking to festival goers about why renewable energy is the future for the UK rather than dirty fossil fuels.

At WOMAD, we held talks on the Ecotricity stand, chatted with people, held competitions, and everyone joined in the fun.

At Vegan Camp Out, it was a similar affair. We met lots of people who hadn’t heard of our vegan energy, and many were shocked that their energy supplier who may be green but not vegan. It was great to meet so many like-minded individuals who were passionate about creating a difference in the world we live in.

If you didn’t make it to either of these festivals don’t worry, you can watch some of the talks from the event below.

At WOMAD, Dale Vince entertained the crowds with a live recording of his podcast Zerocarbonista alongside TalkTV host, Ian Collins.

At Vegan Camp Out, our very own Katrina hosted a fascinating talk, called “Hidden Ingredients – how far do we look?”, alongside Henry and Ian from BOSH!, Juilet Gellatley from Viva! and our Chief Growth Officer, Paul Sands.

We all had a great time at these events and can’t wait for next year!

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
