For nine years, Hay Festival has been focussed on improving its overall sustainability and has engaged in a programme of managing and mitigating our environmental impact through its Hay on Earth programme. Over this period we have focused on three key areas: our own direct impacts; the impacts of our audience, and the programming of events, workshops and outreach work that stimulate debate and discussion about key issues.
