Eden Festival of Action: Be part of a growing, global, green movement

The Eden Festival of Action is an environmental action gathering combining practical ecosystem restoration work like tree-planting, with a full line-up of workshops, talks and activities from sustainability experts. The evenings are filled with campfire sessions, storytelling and music from some of South Africa’s finest musicians.

Get active at Greenpop’s Eden Festival of Action 2022 supporting work in the Garden Route through:

-Reforestation tree planting
-Eco-education workshops
-Mural painting
-Alien vegetation clearing

The 2022 event will be held at Wild Spirit Lodge (2 – 9 October 2022).

As an implementation partner to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration which is advocating for the halt of ecosystem degradation, Greenpop is aiming, through this event, to promote a new culture of restoration, highlighting its importance when trying to undertake the planet’s biggest issues such as climate change and food security.

Restoring degraded landscapes is vital to prolonging life on earth. What is incredible about ecosystem restoration is that it provides a foundation for all of the Sustainable Development Goals, for example reducing flood and fire risk, ending hunger and aiding economic growth. The goals are the heart of The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015, sharing the essence of peace and prosperity for the people and planet, now and for generations to come.

At the Eden Festival of Action in 2022, Greenpop plans to plant 2000-3000 indigenous trees, participate in much-needed alien clearing, paint environmental murals in collaboration with local communities and host talks and workshops on sustainability. We will be inviting an array of NGO partners to attend to engage in further conversations imperative to furthering climate restoration work advocacy.

From natural building to upcycling, the festival will provide a space for turning environmental awareness into positive action. Collaborative artworks, live music, DJ’s, and dancing under the clear, unpolluted night skies, are some additional highlights of the festival. The skills learned and shared will be invaluable in creating a more environmentally conscious society that can better respond to the environmental and social challenges we face, now and in the future.
