Fundraising for our new Marquee
Our main marquee, the one where all the plenary conference sessions are held, is now over 25 years old and no longer as waterproof as it needs to be to keep us dry in a English summer! We are therefore fundraising for a new marquee, and the Green & Away band have recorded this song, written by Sophie Stammers to tell you more. It was recorded in the marquee while it was raining! If you'd like to make a donation (we'd love it if you would!), you can here.
Green & Away is Europe's only tented conference centre a fully serviced event venue, in the form of an inspirational and environmentally sustainable village - available for hire. We provide an innovative and creative space in which people from all sorts of organisations, businesses and interest groups can come together. Whether you are coordinating an event and considering Green & Away as a possible venue, or an individual interested in attending one of our open events, please find out more about our unique eco conference centre by browsing our website.
We are proud to be listed by Resurgence Magazine in its 40th anniversary issue as one of "Forty Initiatives that are Changing the World".
Contact us for further information, and come and enjoy the wonderfully different, outdoor living experience that is Green & Away.
Research by academics at Harvard and London Business School supports the idea that people make better decisions at places like Green & Away saying "people who were made to think about luxury prior to a decision-making task have a higher tendency to endorse self-interested decisions that might potentially harm others".
