Register Now for the 2022 Dublin Pride Parade

Important Note: If you plan to take part as an individual or with your friends or family, there is no need to register. You can rock up on the day, watch from the side or join in and march, or a bit of both. Remember, Pride is both Protest and Celebration, you’re welcome to bring your own banners and make as much noise as you like, however they must be respectful and inclusive of our LGBTQ+ community and not create a safety hazard.

DUBLIN PRIDE ANNOUNCES CARBON NEUTRALITY FOR 2022

Dublin Pride have announced their plan to become carbon neutral for the 2022 Dublin Pride Festival & Parade in partnership with Ireland’s leading sustainable events consultancy Native Events

Dublin Pride’s Climate Action Policy outlines their commitment to reducing their environmental impact across the organisation, the wider festival community and partner organisations. For 2022, Dublin Pride will focus on reducing as much as possible the carbon footprint of the event while offsetting residual emissions. 

Speaking about the importance of climate action for Pride 2022, Dublin Pride CEO Jed Dowling notes, “LGBTQ+ people and other marginalised communities are disproportionately affected by the climate crisis. As a human rights organisation and Ireland’s second largest festival, it’s our responsibility to lead the way for the LGBTQ+ community and the events industry.” 

Actions to reduce and measure carbon include the use of the best practice carbon calculation tool from creative climate charity Julie’s Bicycle EU. The tool has been developed to produce a CO2 analysis specifically for arts, cultural and events organisations. Additionally, Dublin Pride will work with Native Events to implement a Smart Power Plan with ZAP Concepts event power tool. This will accurately gather power requirements and specify equipment installation reducing the festival’s energy consumption, diesel usage and carbon emissions. ZAP Concepts have successfully worked with other Pride Festivals where they reduced overall carbon dioxide and equivalent emissions by 64%. 

Native Events CEO Megan Best adds, “We are really excited to work with Dublin Pride who have inspired us with their determination and value set for climate action and justice. Rising to the climate crisis is a serious challenge but we have a number of fantastic tools and carbon calculators that will help us to deliver the climate neutrality mission for Pride 2022.”
