Green Is the New Black is pleased to announce Singapore based Conscious Festival coming to Hong Kong for Earth Day weekend, 20-22 April 2018 at PMQ 元創方 and in partnership with Ocean Recovery Alliance. Two new components are being released exclusively for the Hong Kong chapter.

As the first festival of its kind in Hong Kong, The Conscious Festival by Green Is the New Black (GITNB) is an event for people who want to improve the way they think, live and consume while doing more good in the world. This is a place where fun and social environmental responsibility go hand in hand.

The festival empowers individuals to take #LittleGreenSteps to #LiveMoreConsciously, through a mindful marketplace (free entry), transformational talks (ticketed) and an industry Unconference (ticketed). Bringing together the best conscious local and international brands, speakers, and change makers who are making meaningful change in their industries, the festival provides a curated platform to raise awareness around sustainable consumption and lifestyle choices, so that people can make informed decisions about the way they live.

Green Is the New Black’s mission is to empower the greater community to take positive action to leave the world in a better place and connect with ourselves, others and mother nature. During their October 2017 festival in Singapore, they featured over 25 speakers, 70 local brands, attracted over 2500 attendees and reached over 100 million people digitally.

With a market featuring over 70 mindful brands, transformative talks, delicious healthy eats, organic booze, interactive art and games – this is one festival not to be missed. In a snapshot, what goes down:
