The Green Home Festival is the brainchild of the Construction Industry Collective Voice (CICV), a coalition of Scotland's leading construction trade and professional bodies. Representatives from its 29 organisations have pooled their considerable expertise and knowledge to deliver the event as part of the 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Running from 8-12 August, the Green Home Festival will feature 12 shows, which are all free to attend. Some will be in-person and hosted at the offices of The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors at 10 Charlotte Square in Edinburgh. Others will be delivered online via webinar or on-site at other locations around the city. The climate emergency, net zero and soaring energy prices are the driving factors behind the Green Home Festival. Our aim is to engage the public and businesses in the global challenge, offering demonstrations and hands-on guidance to help everyone reduce their carbon footprint and become more energy efficient. With the ongoing cooperation of the Scottish construction sector, the CICV plans to make the festival an annual event that will help build a long-term legacy and demonstrate our commitment to greener and cheaper low-carbon solutions.
