Green Light Festival, Leicester

I spent the afternoon at the Green Light Festival, which was held at De Montfort University in Leicester.

As billed by its website:
Green Light is Leicester’s festival of sustainable living. It’s organised by a team of passionate local volunteers and showcases the best of all things green in Leicester… through talks, workshops, performance, kids activities and a whole lot more. 
Leicester’s huge range of environmental community projects will be on show, and the event will share lots of ideas for action that you can take at home, in business and in your local community.
I attended two of the sessions: a talk on using social media for campaigning by John Coster from Citizens' Eye and one titled "Car culture is over if we want it" by Andy Sakeld from Ride Leicester.

As is the way with such events, I came home with a bag full of leaflets for good causes. When I get time I shall look through them and post any particularly interesting links
