Rooster Talks: How to be a green traveller with Richard Hammond

Thursday 14th July
6.30 – 7.30pm

Admission is free
Book via Eventbrite

The world has woken up to climate change yet we all still want to continue to go on holiday. This talk will look at how to do this in a way that’s kinder to the planet.

Richard is an author and videographer whose media company Green Traveller – based at the Glove Factory – specialises in shining a light on greener travel through words, photos, and film.

Richard will talk us through the carbon-conscious options, showing how being a green traveller is not just about camping or staying in luxury eco-hotels. New, faster and more comfortable rail and ferry services are making cross-continental travel easy and enjoyable, while many hotels and tour operators are improving their credentials and actively facilitating local conservation and community projects.

He’ll also show how it’s possible to make more sustainable choices at every stage of a holiday, from what to pack to how to travel out to the destination, and he’ll provide ideas for lots of fabulous green and gorgeous holidays in the UK, Europe and beyond.

Richard has over 20 years’ experience in writing and filming green travel all over the world. He is the former eco travel correspondent for the Guardian, author of Sawday’s Green Places to Stay, travel editor of National Geographic GREEN, and has produced over 100 videos for clients in both the public and private sector. His book, The Green Traveller, has just been published by Pavilion Books and Richard will be signing copies after the talk.

Join us for this special evening Rooster Talk. Wild Herb at the Field Kitchen will be open until 6.30 pm for drinks and a bite to eat.

Rooster Talks entry is free – book your place on Eventbrite.
