You can start with this year’s first ever Virtual Conscious Festival in Asia. The event is organised by Green Is The New Black. The event is taking place over three days, June 12, 13 and 14. There will be live stream inspiring talks, energising workshops and a conscious shopping experience.
The Conscious Festival is a 3-day interactive online escape that will have you going across countries and borders between Asia and Europe to learn first-hand about the challenges and solutions relating to climate change. There are 3 different ‘zones’ where attendees can explore, learn and shop.
This is the hub of the Virtual Conscious Festival. The marketplace will showcase over 70 different conscious brands and retailers. You can shop and learn the importance of supporting small businesses and why they are doing what they are doing. The expo will be filled with lifestyle art, food, beauty, fashion and wellbeing. This is the type of retail therapy you would want. The brands that you are supporting is conscious and mindful of their business practices.
