A month-long series of eco-events
This annual community festival is filled with environmental events, activities, workshops and sustainable living actions. A diverse, interactive and educational offers experiences for individuals, families and groups to re-connect to nature and the environment as a whole.
Simultaneously, EcoMatters is hosting EcoFest West, and together we are creating Auckland's biggest environmental festival, EcoFest!
While learning new skills and having fun, we hope that everyone walks away inspired to make little changes and together we create a better future.
