This year, Hive is partnering with Hay Festival. Hay Festival is on a mission to inspire, examine and entertain with sustainable events and projects across the globe. We are sponsoring their event in Hay-on-Wye in Wales, where there will be a ‘Hive Hub’ hosting an array of events focusing on sustainability and climate issues.
What is Hay Festival?
Hay Festival is a cultural platform that allows attendees to discover new ideas and invites the audiences to imagine the world as it is, and as it could be. The events are a catalyst for change. The Festival hosts events across the globe to widen cultural participation and inspire world-changers of the future.
2023 marks the 36th spring event in Hay-on-Wye where there will be over 500 events across 11 days. The programme for the festival costs of sustainable events hosted by award-winning writers, policy makers, pioneers, and innovators from across the globe.
Hive and Hay
Hay Festival aims to inspire its audience and encourage new ways of thinking – that’s where Hive comes in this year! We are partnering with Hay Festival this year on their ‘Hay on Earth, Planet Assembly and the Natural World’ division of events. The Hay on Earth series will take part throughout the duration of the festival and will focus on the latest environmental science, sustainable policies, and creative responses to the climate crisis.
Planet Assembly is a new series for the Festival, focusing on solutions-focused workshops once a day. The events will be hosted by sustainability entrepreneur Andy Middleton and will cover topics from energy and health to food and fashion.
