A new climate and sustainability festival, Shropshire Goes Green, is in the planning by Shropshire Council.

Building on the success of November 2021’s Shropshire Goes Electric event, which put the spotlight on sustainable transport and encouraged the use of electric vehicles, Shropshire Council is now opening the event up to cover all aspects of sustainability.

Ian Nellins, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for climate change, natural assets and the green economy, is inviting companies and groups to become Shropshire Goes Green exhibitors at the event, to be held at Shrewsbury Town FC’s stadium on Sunday 25 September 2022.

Ian said:-

“Shropshire Goes Electric proved a great success, with more than 1,300 visitors finding out about the huge variety of new electric models available from the 17 car manufacturers represented, as well as the chance to experience ebikes and rickshaws.

“What we were delighted to learn from this is that there is a real hunger for people to understand more about sustainable living and how they can help reduce our carbon footprint.

“For this reason we have decided to expand our event to embrace not just electric vehicles but all kinds of technologies to help people enjoy a more sustainable lifestyle.

“We want to grow a ‘homes zone’ to attract companies which operate in the sustainable living sector. It is the perfect opportunity for suppliers and installers of solar panels, cavity wall insulation, heat pumps, LED lighting etc to showcase their products and reach an engaged audience.”
