The Virtual Conscious Festival 2020
Time Out says
The annual Conscious Festival is back but this time the event is going virtual.
Founded by Green is the New Black – a platform empowering people to take positive actions on environmental issues – the event was initially scheduled to hold its Hong Kong festival last April, but in light of the current global situation, the organisers decided to bring the activities online. This year's theme is 'Create The Change' which addresses how people can take actions and create solutions relating to climate change.
Taking place on June 12 to 14, the event is dividing the virtual experience into zones where guests can explore activities, engage in talks, and shop for sustainable products. The interactive panel discussions will feature over 80 leaders and change-makers from business, fashion, and wellness sectors. Speakers will include key personalities from Extinction Rebellion, LUSH, Project Drawdown, Ikea, Plant Based News, Kering, Positive Luxury, The Guardian, MUD Jeans, and many more. The virtual expo will cover over 70 sustainable brands which will showcase products that people can buy online, and bespoke workshops that participants can engage in throughout the day. And to recreate the on-ground festival atmosphere, they have also lined up DJs and artists from Hong Kong, London, Paris, and Singapore to spice up the digital event.
Entry to the three-day virtual event starts at $5 to $60 but is free for medical professionals and frontline workers. If you want to join the festivity but are strapped for cash, email the organisers, and they'll try to sort out tickets for you.
