Sustainability and an awareness of our impact on the local environment and community has been part of our ethos at Boardmasters since the very beginning.
Working with industry-leading sustainability consultants, we are building on the existing work we’ve been doing and introducing new initiatives with the aim of continually making Boardmasters one of the most environmentally conscious and low-impact festivals in the market. With the support of our audience and festival partners it’s helps us reach our ambitions and create an environment where everyone is inspired to take immediate positive action.
Since 2001, we’ve worked side-by-side with long-standing partner Surfers Against Sewage to develop and implement environmental strategies for the festival and the surrounding areas. Since 2018, SAS have been the largest beneficiary of the Boardmasters Foundation, receiving over £25,000 in 2021 to support their invaluable work to protect the UK’s coastlines.
We give our festival goers the chance to get involved with the Million Mile Beach Cleans during Boardmasters as well as supporting year round.
Help us to protect the Cornish Coastline and create a greener, cleaner festival! Without the beautiful Cornish Coastline and awesome Atlantic Ocean, where would Boardmasters be? Trebelsue Farm, Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach combine to make an awesome festival site – so it’s in our best interest to look after it. But to do this we need your help!
