Greenpop Eden Festival of Action 2018
June 23 - July 15
After the devastating fires that tore through the Garden Route last year, we’re on a mission to #regreenthegardenroute!
Every June/July, the Greenpop Festival of Action brings people together from around the globe to learn, connect, give back and get active. For the past 6 years, this event has taken place in Livingstone, Zambia and for the first time in 2018, the Festival of Action is being hosted in the Eden District, South Africa.
Over three weeks we will plant trees, rehabilitate ecosystems, clear alien vegetation build using eco-methods, set up recycling systems, paint eco murals, attend sustainability workshops, celebrate with live music and more. It’s an adventure for active citizens who want to change their world.
Weeks 1 and 2 are specifically for high school students. In Week 3 we welcome participants of all ages. Previously, we’ve hosted university students interested in environmental topics, professionals keen to take a holiday with a difference, study groups doing field work, families who love adventure and individuals from all walks of life who want to get active for the environment and have fun at the same time.
Rock the Route is proud to be partnering with Greenpop for this initiative. We will be providing Day Trips to everyone at the Festival of Action – our chance to show off how breathtakingly beautiful this part of the world is!
Join us there!
