FestEco is going to be Argentina's first 'zero carbon' festival. We want to organize an environmental festival to increase awareness about our carbon footprint in a creative and fun way, through art, projections, a stage with music and theater, a fair, information stands, workshops, activities for children, a 'green' food area, carbon footprint games - and much more!
All of this, using alternative energy, part of which will be generated in real time with the participation of the public. We are also going to organize a tree-planting in the neighborhood. To achieve all of this, we are working with dozens of organizations, engineers, activists, artists, chefs, agriculture specialists and all kinds of volunteers.
The festival will take place the 25th and 26th February in CheLA, an old factory in Parque Patricios, and the space will host different themed areas, such as food, transport, energy generation, trash and recycling and responsible consumerism.
When we think of a 'zero carbon' festival what we want to create in Buenos Aires is a space where the key players and aspects of environmental issues in Argentina can be found, and show that we have many tools within our reach to organize an event and have fun, contaminating as little as possible. This can then be translated into daily life, in many new habits that we can all incorporate. The first step is to understand how our carbon footprint is generated and what impact is has on the environment, to then understand what alternatives there are to reduce it.
We believe it is important that the festival is free for all those who want to get involved, attending and learning.
