We Need You!

The journey to the summer festival has begun and we need your help getting there.

We have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help find all the money needed to make this the best event ever.

If you have a spare £2 and believe in what we are trying to do at Envirolution, please pledge and share the web page to all your friends.

We want to create the change needed together, with you being a vital element all the way along.

Thank you in Advanced, The Envirolution Team

Your Big Small Ideas

Do you have a big idea? Are you working on the first small part to get it off the ground? We want to hear from you.

Envirolution always aimed at being more than just a festival. We dreamt that the environmental movement would sweep over the city and we could be a on the crest of the wave.

Unfortunately the revolution has been a little slower in coming and it looks like the grassroots will have to work even harder to be the ones to get it moving.

We want to bring together five initial ideas/start up/small businesses that are working with the right ethics as a ‘Envirolution Incubator’. We can combine our forces and skills to shake Manchester into action.

If this sounds like you, it sounds interesting or you simply want to find out more get in touch.

Festival 2016 – What are your ideas?

The festival season for 2015 is coming to an end, which means that we are beginning to think about our festival in 2016.

I hope you were all off enjoying yourself at the many fantastic festivals on offer over the summer. Please let us know if you saw anything this summer that would add some extra sparkle to the next Envirolution.

Dwelle – The Eco House

dwelle trailWe are lucky enough to have an eco demonstration house right next to Platt Fields Park on Wilmslow Road. The structure is open for public viewings every Friday and Saturday which means it will be open on Saturday 25th May. The sensible amongst us will mooch on over on their way to the Envirolution Festival.

You can find the house and its designer, Ric, at the Wilmslow Road and Platt Lane corner of the park. Then simply follow the map opposite to find your way over to Envirolution.

Dwelle will be on hand with refreshments to answer all your questions about the house and give you a tour.

We hope you’ll be able to call by between 1pm and 7pm for a nosey at their dwelle.ing, see their grow-your-own demonstration.

They’ll also be introducing their brand new Carbon Literacy workshops – explaining ‘how changing the aspects of our collective behaviour that result in the generation of dangerous greenhouse gases sustains our planet and our pockets, and will keep the world a safe, healthy and prospering place to live.

They are located at 265 Wilmslow Road, Manchester, M14 5LN.
