14 March – 12 April 2015

Living sustainably for te ao, te whanau, ki ahau – for the world, the family and for me

Ecofest North will run from 14 March to 12 April 2015 with core support from Auckland Council, and proudly sponsored by Ray White North Shore.

The festival offers a month of fun, practical, creative events that guide residents of the greater North Shore on their journey to living more sustainably. Our major online event is The Sustainable Whanau Challenge.

Ecofest North kicks off on Sat 14 March with a massive family fun day at the Birkdale bush HQ of festival co-ordinators Kaipatiki Project Environment Centre.
Rolling out across the month will be:

  • home-spun and expert tips, talks and workshops that will inspire us all to live better
  • community-building races, challenges and fun-days that promote care for our neighbourhoods
  • a showcase of awesome volunteer-led environmental actions that are transforming our wild and urban nature-spaces
  • the Sustainable Whanau Challenge – win big by taking simple steps towards greater sustainability
