Featuring Colonel Mustard and the Dijon Five, Caroline Lucas, Rou Reynolds, Sandrine Dixson-Decleve and many more…

In November, the most important conversation in the world is taking place in Glasgow.  COP26 will bring together thousands of legislators, politicians and journalists to make decisions about our collective future.  The idea behind Common Ground Festival is to create a space to include everyone in these conversations.

Together with fiis, WEAll is thrilled to bring this innovative new festival to Glasgow on Saturday 6 November during COP26: and it’s completely free.

It will be the space to hold and celebrate the conversations that involve us all in the intersection of climate action and economy to repair our planet.

We believe that art and music have the ability to effect change from the ground up and to shift the conversation.

Because we can’t talk about the climate crisis without talking about the economy.

We must advocate for a system that prioritises the health of the planet and its people above infinite growth and consumption.

We must challenge the narrative that we are separate from nature, that nature is just a resource, and that we are separate from each other to a new narrative of interconnection and wellbeing, in which we look after one another.

The line-up

Music from: Colonel Mustard & the Dijon 5, The Dalmar Chorus, Kitti and Sacred Paws, with more to be announced…

Discussions and dialogue with: Caroline Lucas MP, Rou Reynolds (Enter Shikari), Sandrine Dixson-Decleve (Club of Rome), Pat Kane (Hue and Cry), Dr Katherine Trebeck (WEAll), and many, many more!

Plus a “green marketplace” where you can discover the social enterprises already transforming the economic system in and around Glasgow.
