HONG KONG — Green Is the New Black, a platform dedicated to empowering individuals to take #littlegreensteps to #livemoreconsciously, is on a mission to support the greater community in order to leave the world in a better place.
Successfully delivering four Conscious Festivals in Singapore since its launch in 2015, now the event has ambitions to pioneer the way consumers in Hong Kong engage with conscious living.
The first festival of its kind on the island, The Conscious Festival by Green Is the New Black (GITNB) will target individuals who want to improve the way they think, live and consume, within an environment where fun and social environmental responsibility go hand-in-hand.
According to Founder Stephanie Dickson, participants will have the opportunity to deep dive through a series of talks, ‘edu-tainment’ activities and interactive art – and learn that going green can be fun and easy.
“It’s possible to live our modern lives while positively impacting our planet and community. We want people to leave with tangible actions they can do on a daily basis, and show that sustainability is accessible in Hong Kong,” she argues.
The festival will feature a range of activities, exhibitions and performances, consisting of a mindful marketplace (free entry), transformational talks (ticketed) and an industry conference (ticketed). Bringing together the best conscious local and international brands, speakers and change makers, who are creating meaningful change in their industries, the festival will provide a curated platform to raise awareness around sustainable consumption and lifestyle choices, so that people can make informed decisions about the way they live.
Speakers will include Sonalie Figueiras, Founder of Green Queen, Hong Kong’s largest health and wellness media platform and Ekowarehouse, the leading global sourcing platform for certified organic products, Angus Tsui, an award-winning designer who has collaborated with companies like H&M, Ford and Cathay Pacific to create up-cycled products using sustainable materials, and Doug Woodring, Founder of Ocean Recovery Alliance, a business focused on bringing together innovative solutions, technology and policy, to impact positive improvements for the health of the ocean.
Taking place on 20th to 22nd April 2018 at PMQ 元創方, in partnership with Ocean Recovery Alliance, The Conscious Festival hopes to make a statement that together, people can do more with less and reduce their collective footprint on the planet.
