Be waste positive with INDIA ENVIRONMENT FESTIVAL!

In nature, nothing is considered as waste because our mother nature has her own means of recycling/upcycling its products. Based on the same principle, WAY (WORLD AROUND YOU) has brought to ahmedabad a one of a kind eco-friendly festival to bring out the eco-community together and instill the concept of being waste positive; the first ever edition of INDIA ENVIRONMENT FESTIVAL on the 24th, 25th and 26th of February at Amdavad haat, vastrapur from 9 am onwards! Scroll down to know more! 

A brainchild of two nature loving, environmentally conscious friends – Wricha Johari & Prakshal Mehta, WAY (WORLD AROUND YOU) was conceived with a vision to bring about a behavioral change amongst people through the medium of developmental communication. Over the years, the idea has beautifully shaped into a self-sustaining and impactful social enterprise that has been passionately undertaking several initiatives like WAY-Everything Connects, World Environment Day Festival, PenPals, Scookers, Free The Trees & Shopping for the Planet; each of which have been successful and impactful like no other mass movement in the state! 

In order to spread awareness at a nation wide level, WAY has come up with IEF'17 this year that focuses on changing public interest, perceptions and behaviours about waste and aims to set a paradigm of adopting positive practices of waste management at individual levels. 

IEF is nothing short of an outreach program especially developed to engage the general mass with the national Swachh bharat abhiyan and will witness more than 20 interesting activities for participants to experience waste through lens of science, art, craft, music, design, fun and learning; a mammoth effort that needs to be applauded, recognised and replicated around the nation! 

Staunch believers of the fact that Waste is a wealth of resource, and not a problem; this festival will feature varied activities ranging from WASTE POSITIVE SESSIONS by renowned speakers on the 24th of Feb from 10 am to 5 pm, An ECO-PRENEURS MEET on the 25th from 9:30 am to 5 pm wherein a global community of Eco-preneurs will come together to harness new knowledge, build networks, foster multi stakeholder dialogue, enterprise capacity building, share innovative solutions and explore new markets and challenges and a DOG ADOPTION SHOW on the 26th from 6 pm to 9 pm.

The list is not over because they are also organising various STREET PLAYS to raise awareness about the marine life cruelty, a CLEANLINESS DRIVE at THOL on the 26th feb from 6:30 am to 10 am, a SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN where you can share your stories and inspire others and different workshops based on upcycling, weaving and creating garments out of waste materials, eco friendly cooking, growing your own vegetables, and a kid special workshop to spread awareness amongst them through fun activities. 

IEF’17 also brings the first of its kind exclusive and carefully curated green market called HARA PITARA to Ahmedabad where brands will showcase everything from organic food, clothing, services, handicrafts, clean technology products etc and will share their story of love towards our beloved environment! 

The entire decor features waste art, is pet friendly, will have interactive live jamming sessions, pottery and a lot more along with a waste collection drive as well. With so much to do and only for three days, trust me you're going to want to spend your entire days here!
