Saturday & Sunday, 2-3 November 2019
11am – 7pm
The Conscious Festival is returning to Singapore for the 5th time! A place where fun and social environmental responsibility go hand in hand. This will be an excellent weekend of activities, where families can explore live workshops, activities, Vegan and healthy F&B offerings, local band performances and over 100 mindful brand pop-ups and 20 edutainment booths by NGOs. Some highlights include:
MeshMinds AR Experience:
MeshMinds and André Wee have come together to create an interactive, engaging and impactful augmented reality experience, CleanSeas AR, which is supported by UN Environment. Plunged into a virtual sea of plastic ocean creatures, smile into the Facebook Camera to make a pledge to beat plastic pollution and achieve clean seas for future generations. Learn about the importance of reducing marine pollution by refusing single-use plastics and educate people in your network to act now.
Ayer Ayer Project Shore Debris Table:
When artist Ernest Goh created the Shore Debris Table he had hoped the table will not only translate the dire state of pollution in our oceans into an artwork, but also for it become an intersection of views and ideas about our environment. Designed like a dining table and made of driftwood, the artwork is meant to suggest how plastics are now entering our food chain and having a meal on the table would bring these the various elements of the issue together. Families are invited to pick out plastic pieces from the Shore Debris Table and experience plastic pollution up close and personal.
billionBricks x HealthPartners:
For many reasons, too many children and their families don’t have houses to live in. billionBricks provides these children with specially-built tents to serve as temporary homes. During the Conscious Festival, children (with assistance) can come into one of their tents and with reused materials make their own short, simple books about what home means to them.
2030s SDG Workshop:
2030SDGs Game is a multiplayer, in-person, card-based game that simulates taking the “real world” into the year 2030. Learn about UN Sustainable Development Goals and find out how to contribute to a more sustainable world—suitable for families to join in on the fun too!
Ready, Cassette, Go! Up-cycling Workshop:
Do you know more than 4.6 million tons of e-waste ended up in Asia’s landfills? Rehyphen started an up-cycling initiative whereby they collect and weave discarded tapes as an effort to reduce and eliminate e-waste while giving the product new life. You and your family will have the chance to access their exclusive cassette & video tapes collection which were donated from the Singapore community. Pick a cassette tape/video tape and weave it into a piece of MusicCloth®, which can turn into a Singapore city map: a unique and original gift.
There are a wide range of speakers presenting as part of TALKS, including a talk entitled Rising Seas, Rising Youths, which features a series of young environmentalists. The event is free to enter for the public, with an optional donation. There is a ticket fee for the TALKS, with a large portion of ticket sales will go to planting trees.
