Grassroots Festival Celebrates All Things Bright and Beautiful

Published: 14th July 2017 10:33

 A festival that aims to promote local groups and organisations with an environmental outlook is taking place at Portsmouth Cathedral on the 15th July.

The Grassroots Festival will run from 10am to 2pm and forms part of the cathedral's annual theme programme, which this year is focusing on ecology and the environment.

There will be stalls from a number of local group including Friends of the Earth, Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, Global Justice Portsmouth and more. Cocoastal are also hoping to bring their 'rockpool' display where you can see examples of local marine life.

Guest speakers are offering TED-style talks looking at themes around the health of our coastline, how prehistoric pollen tells a story of climate change and information around the proposed coastal defences for Southsea common. There will also be a panel of local experts answering your questions on simple ways to live in a greener and more thoughtful way.

Have a cuppa in Green Cafe, explore the Willow Dome and add your hopes and prayers for the future, learn new things about local research and initiatives to keep Portsmouth green and beautiful.
