This week on Square Mile Reports we visited the environmental showcase the Green Light festival which took place at De Montfort University’s Queen’s Building on March 31st 2012.
Green Light is a major one-day festival to celebrate and showcase sustainable living in Leicester, organised by local volunteers.
The event featured over 40 interactive stalls, over 30 expert talks and practical workshops as well as an art exhibition, music, local food, lots of useful information on going green at home and much more.
Leicester’s huge range of environmental community projects were on show, and the event shared lots of ideas for action that you can take at home, in business and in the local community.
Green Light was initiated by members of Transition Leicester, who have worked with Groundwork Leicester and Leicestershire to make the festival happen. Over 900 people attended the event which is now in it’s 2nd year.
On the show we spoke to visitors to the festival as well as representatives from Leicester Friends of the Earth, Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust, Plumb Solar Ltd, Greenfinder, Bright Bikes, and Groundwork.
