Green Is The New Black is a conscious festival for people who want to #LiveMoreConsciously, and it’s coming to Hong Kong April 20–22, just in time to celebrate Earth Day. This is no boring conference on living responsibly—in fact, this year guest panels, workshops and keynote speakers are coming together for an “unconference” on ‘Making Business Circular’, followed by special screenings and a marketplace, open to the public.
This is a place where fun and social environmental responsibility go hand in hand. It’s also a leading platform that aims to empower people with the tools and inspiration to be the catalyst for change. The October 2017 festival in Singapore attracted over 2,500 attendees and reached over 100 million people digitally.
Workshops, talks, food and music
Join keynote speakers such as Doug Woodring, Founder and Managing Director of Ocean Recovery Alliance; Fanny Moritz, Zero Waste Lifestyle guru; and Hanna Hallin, Sustainability Manager for Greater China at H&M, in four insightful and transformative sessions on April 20. April 21 and 22 will see over 70 conscious brands from fashion, lifestyle, and beauty “showcasing products that protect people and the planet”, plus live music, exhibitions, screenings and fantastic food.
