Zambia Festival of Action
Launched in 2012, every June/July Greenpop hosts the Zambia Festival of Action in Livingstone which brings people together from around the globe to learn, connect, give back, grow and get active. Over three weeks they plant trees, grow food forests, build using eco-methods, set up recycling systems, brighten up schools with eco murals, attend sustainability workshops, celebrate with live music and more. It's an adventure for active citizens who want to change their world. It's a TREEvolution - Get involved!

Greenpop is an award-winning social enterprise on a mission to reconnect people with our planet - and have fun doing it. They plant trees through urban greening and reforestation projects, spread environmental awareness wherever they go, and activate people through green festivals and workshops.
In 2017 the festival will run from 25 June to 16 July 2017 in Livingstone, Zambia – a stone's throw from the mighty Victoria Falls. This organisation has so far planted 80,000 trees to date. Those trees provide daily benefits to 350,000 people in 3 countries.
You might think this project is all about planting trees, but this environmental action summit offers so much more. They offer a range of action-based sustainability workshops that includes beekeeping, upcycling, natural building, permaculture, education through art, eco enterprise and more. They also have exciting activations planned, such as film screenings, yoga, talent shows and music sessions.
Zambia Festival of Action is registered as a local NGO, with a base in Livingstone. To get an idea about the project, watch this short video: Zambia Festival of Action 2017 - Apply Now!
