The Virtual Conscious Festival in June: Sustainable living, climate change talks, and more
As we all scramble to deal with the outbreak of COVID-19, tree-huggers are taking this time to readjust to new ways of pushing for global change. While this year may see the lowest drop in carbon emissions on record, it is imperative that we continue to educate ourselves and practise sustainable habits in our everyday lives. This is where The Conscious Festival comes in, hosting a series of talks from climate change crusaders, a virtual marketplace, and even live DJ performances from all around the world, for like-minded individuals to network with conscious companies and activists.
Back for the fifth time this year, The Conscious Festival by Green Is The New Black (GITNB) will be accessible as a three-day immersive virtual event from 12-14 June. With Europe on board this time, you can expect to learn from an even wider global collective, gaining tools, knowledge and motivation through energising talks, workshops, and a conscious shopping experience — across the various themes of wellbeing, lifestyle, beauty, fashion, business, food, and art.
In a bid to help guide attendees towards embracing a more sustainable lifestyle by reconnecting with themselves, others, and the planet, the virtual festival will fuse the best speakers, change makers, businesses and brands. How does this year's inaugural platform compare? Via Virtual Conscious Festival Zones that are easily accessible on a digital space.
Here's what to come in the five festival zones, where you can waltz in without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
Talk stage & live sessions
With its focus on four core pillars— business, planet, wellbeing, and fashion — attendees can join a series of talks, panels and workshops from key industry authorities, brand founders, and activists. They will take us through topics such as owning a purpose-led business, up-cyling for a circular economy, and cleaning up our oceans.
Virtual Marketplace 'Expo'
The hub of The Virtual Conscious Festival, the marketplace will now showcase over 70 different conscious brands and retailers (across lifestyle, art, food, beauty, fashion, and wellbeing), educating consumers on the importance of supporting small businesses and their aims.
Featuring a carefully curated, spectacular line-up of experiential workshops, you'll be able to raise your consciousness about sustainability and environmentally-friendly lifestyle choices from home. With dance and breathwork sessions, enlightening expert masterclasses, as well as a bunch of games and live music sessions from local artists to enjoy, these workshops are nothing short of awesome.
Like-minded individuals can expect to engage in conversations about consciousness in order to break down the walls. Visit this zone to broaden your perspectives, dive into thought-provoking discussions, and make positive, meaningful connections.
