Every wondered what the Welsh for 'Zero Carbon Concert' is ...?

Well it is Gŵyl Dim Carbon ! 
I know this because our transition towns colleagues at Transition LLambed in Wales.....

Zero Carbon Concert to rock Aber
Aberystwyth hosts its first Zero Carbon Concert  at lunchtime Saturday 27th November. The town is maybe the only place in Wales to be taking part in this worldwide event.
Starting at a rather unusual time of 11.45am, the free Aberystwyth Zero Carbon Concert takes place in the bandstand on the promenade and finishes about 3pm.
It is one of many concerts being held on that weekend, just before the UN climate summit in Cancun, Mexico. The Worldwide Zero Carbon Concert intends to demonstrate that it is possible to have fun without causing climate change.
Local organisers are planning a multiple line up at Aberystwyth bandstand over lunchtime on Saturday 27th November. Bands that will be rocking the bandstand include Quercus Burlesque, The Unknown, The Present, and The Horizons.
The line up will include other performers such as Côr Gobaith and Samba Agogo.
But it does not stop at performers - there will also be stalls and displays promoting ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
The Zero Carbon Concert, mid-day 27th November, has only been made possible with the help of Seren Events, providers of bespoke low energy solutions for any and all events .
