We welcome Practical Action as a charity partner.

We’re thrilled to have Practical Action on board once again as one of bluedot’s official charity partners for 2018.

Practical Action is a global innovator, inspiring people to discover and adopt ingenious, practical ways to free themselves from poverty and disadvantage. Their projects help communities across the globe, including in Asia, Africa and South America and their inspirational body of work covers sustainable agriculture, water, sanitation and waste, access to energy and reducing vulnerability to disasters.

Practical Action CEO, Paul Smith Lomas has said “We are really excited to be partnering with Bluedot for a third year. The line-up is incredible and it’s a great opportunity to generate some strong support and advocates for Practical Action.

Our ambition is to create a world where all men and women have access to the technology they need to meet their needs and reach their potential. Sustainability and innovation are at the heart of everything we do so Bluedot is the perfect fit for us.”

You’ll be able to visit members of the Practical Action team at their festival stall in the Planet Field, where they’ll be running a range of drop-in activities, demonstrating how their work transforms lives.

Plus, new for 2018, Practical Action will also be running two hands-on workshops at the festival’s Launch Pad, including The Floating Garden Challenge, and Ditch the Dirt.
