Peat-Fest is an annual festival organised by youth-led group RE-PEAT that explores all-things-peat. The theme for Peat-Fest 2022 is the Rights of Peatlands, with the programme including various talks and workshops exploring and building a notion of the Rights of Peatlands. Ensayos will be leading the session the final session on Sunday the 4th of September at 18.30-20.30 CEST online. You can sign-up via this link!
Peat-Fest this year builds on the Rights of Nature movement – an emerging global movement which uses legal frameworks to demand official acknowledgement of the inherent right of the living world to exist, to be restored, and to be free from destruction. Peat-Fest will explore all sorts of ideas connecting to this movement – Join the Fest and dive deep into the peat!
Peatlands are some of the most valuable resources on the planet. They are habitats for valuable species, climate warriors, nourishers and cultural spaces. Unfortunately, they are often viewed as ‘wastelands’ and consequently, destroyed. RE-PEAT is a youth-led organization pushing for a re-shaping of this narrative. Peat-Fest is a manifestation of this desire. This year it is a 6-day global and virtual festival dedicated to exploring the subject through music, art, conferences, games, etc. Tune in from the 30th of August!
