Every June/July, the Greenpop Festival of Action brings people together from around the globe to learn, connect, give back and get active. In 2018 we hosted the Festival of Action in the Garden Route for the first time and we are returning to the Garden Route in 2019 to continue our work in the area.

Join us for 1, 2 or 3 weeks of collaborative action!

Participate in environmental workshops, connect with like-minded active citizens and reconnect with nature. Shift your awareness – find headspace and time for yourself in the beautiful Garden Route. Celebrate with live music and a renewed consciousness.

Are you ready to join the TREEvolution?

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 host an Adult Programme. 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.

URBAN GREENING

Take part in urban greening activations at local Garden Route schools and community centres.

REFORESTATION

Get your hands dirty planting trees, turning soil, and digging. Many spaces in the area need regeneration and we hope to make a good start!

ALIEN CLEARING

Join us in this much-needed activation to help stop the further spread of alien vegetation after more seeds germinated in the fires.

ECO-BUILDING

Help build at under-resourced sites with natural methods to uplift spaces and spread awareness about waste management.

ENVIRONMENTAL ART

Join these interactive, environmental mural painting projects at local schools or community centres. Bring some colour and creativity.

Why the Eden District?

After 6 years hosting in Livingstone, Zambia, in 2018, Greenpop moved the Festival of Action to the Garden Route in response to the fires that devastated the area the previous year.

After an incredibly successfully 2018 event, we are returning to the region in 2019 to build upon our existing work, bigger and better than before with old and new partners, projects and renewed energy!

Greenpop aims to partner with and contribute to the many local environmental and social initiatives and be part of an environmental solution, while also teaching skills and lessons that are relevant across the globe – sharing and learning in a place that highlights some of the challenges that our planet faces on a whole.
