Good Energy at Hay Festival 2016
Each year Hay Festival brings together writers from around the world to debate and share stories in the staggering beauty of the Welsh Borders.
Hay celebrates great writing from poets and scientists, lyricists and comedians, novelists and environmentalists, and the power of great ideas to transform our way of thinking. Bill Clinton described the festival as 'The Woodstock of the mind'.
For us at Good Energy, Hay is the perfect setting to debate the issues that matter most to us. So this summer, for the third time, we sponsored a stage at Hay and hosted a series of public discussions about climate change and sustainability.
