Yes, you read that correctly. The Eco Showboat will be at the Electric Picnic this weekend and Insight@NUI Galway’s Niall Ó Brolcháin will be speaking to festival crowds about peatland restoration. The Eco Showboat is a zero carbon floating environmental arts infrastructure that aims to navigate our network of interconnected inland waterways to spark new creative collaborations addressing climate change, fresh water ecology and biodiversity.
The Eco Showboat will be floating on the lake by Stradbally Hall in the Mindfield area of the festival and will feature the solar electric boat Mayfly, and the the pangolin pavilion.
If you are lucky enough to be at the festival, do check it out!
