Green is the New Black – The Conscious Festival is Back

Green Is the New Black and PARKROYAL on Pickering are pleased to announce the fourth edition of Green Is the New Black: The Conscious Festival, to be held on Sunday, 1 October 2017 (11AM-7PM) at PARKROYAL on Pickering.

As the first festival of its kind in Singapore, Green Is the New Black (GITNB) is a conscious event for people who want to improve the way they think, live and consume while doing more good in the world. This is a place where social and environmental responsibility and fun go hand in hand.

The festival empowers individuals to take #LittleGreenSteps to #LiveMoreConsciously, through a Mindful Marketplace (free entry) and Transformational Talks (ticketed). Bringing together the best mindful local and international brands, speakers, and change makers who are making meaningful change in their industries, the festival provides a curated platform to raise awareness around sustainable consumption and lifestyle choices, so that people can make informed decisions about the way they live.

Founded by Stephanie Dickson, a marketer, event organiser and avid connector of conscious individuals and brands, Green Is the New Black’s mission is to empower the greater community to take positive action to leave the world in a better place and connect with ourselves, others and mother nature. In May 2017, the event featured over 25 speakers, 100 local brands, attracted over 2000 attendees and reached over 50 million people digitally.

Stephanie Dickson, says, “We are very excited to be back again with our fourth festival for the third year running. This time we are really focusing on #LittleGreenSteps that all of us can take each day so that we can #LiveMoreConsciously. We want people to leave with tangible actions they can do on a daily basis, and show that sustainability can be accessible in Singapore. We are diving deep with our talks, edu-tainment activities and interactive art – proving that going green can be fun and easy.”

The event welcomes families and little ones and has a variety of activities that are fun for everyone, including games, live music and dancing, glitter and interactive art where everyone can be an artist.

Lee Kin Seng, Director of Marketing Communications of PARKROYAL on Pickering, says, “We’re delighted to host this year’s Green Is The New Black festival at PARKROYAL on Pickering.
