[Go Green] Galway International Arts Festival
In 2023, GIAF introduced Green Ambassadors as part of its Volunteer Programme. The Green Ambassadors assisted, guided and encouraged festival attendees to engage in best waste management practises during the festival. GIAF recycled 37% of the festival’s total waste in 2022 and aimed to grow this figure in 2023, with the extension of its single-use plastic ban across the festival and greater awareness around its 3-bin and 4-bin systems to increase this figure and prevent waste where possible. The Green Ambassadors were on hand during the festival to help promote these initiatives.
