Dale Vince at Shindig Festival 2023
To coincide with Shindig’s ever developing interest in becoming a more sustainable festival we had the legend and pioneer Dale Vince with us for the weekend in 2023.
As a traveller, Dale was an outlaw, living for a decade outside of society, on the road and off the grid in constant tension with the police. After an epiphany in the nineties, he ‘dropped back in’ to build a big windmill on the hill he was parked on and, from there, went on to start the world’s first green energy company.
Dale kickstarted the now global green energy movement using the goals and values he developed on the road to help bring environmentalism into the mainstream. He pioneered the electric car, built the first Electric Highway to power them and runs Forest Green Rovers, the world’s first vegan football club. With a questioning mind that does not take ‘no’ for an assists, Dale has spent his whole life striving for change.
Energy, Transport and Food – are the three main pillars of his manifesto for a better world, along with making room for nature – the consequential fourth.
Dale presented two talks in Nautylicious over the festival weekend!
