JUNCTION 2 ETHOS
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT -
At its heart, Junction 2 is a celebration of the natural features that Boston Manor Park has to offer.
More than any other inner-city festival, it champions the site’s unique landscape. Traditionally, large-scale festivals are notorious wasteful.
Huge levels of disposables and unsightly debris are common in the wake of events this size. As responsible organisers we are committed to bucking this trend.
We are actively aiming to reduce the amount of waste we produce and limit our carbon footprint.
We are continually looking at more sustainable alternatives for products and suppliers/contractors who share our values.
We hand pick suppliers who share our environmental and sustainable values.
Whilst we acknowledge there is still room for improvement, we take pride that our food vendors are increasingly sourcing their products responsibly.
SAFE SPACES -
We inherently believe that going clubbing and attending festivals should not only be a positive, life-affirming experience for everybody – but should be a “safe haven” for people to be themselves and respect others. Everybody is treated as equal, regardless of their ethnicity, gender-identity, sexual-orientation, age, faith or disability. We encourage anybody who feels uncomfortable or intimidated to approach our staff with confidence. Discretion assured. Discrimination and harassment of any form goes against everything we stand for, and it won’t be tolerated at any of our events. More information can be found on the Ask Angela posters around site.
CHARITABLE CAUSES -
As with all of our shows, we have a large number of industry guestlist coming to J2.
In exchange for complimentary admission, we ask for a £10 donation to a charitable endeavour of our choosing.
We chose to assist charities within the local area and on the grounds of who we believe most needs our support around the time of the event.
On this occasion we will be partnering with the Hounslow Council and Friends of Boston Manor.
They are responsible for the maintenance and restoration of Boston Manor House and the surrounding grassland.
In this case, we will be fundraising with a very specific project in mind. So if you are fortunate to find yourself on the guestlist, please remember to bring £10 cash for donation upon arrival.
We will be shedding more light on this project across our social media channels as it comes to fruition.
