The Ecological Celebration presents local organic and natural products, as well as local environmental initiatives to share awareness and dialogue on crucial environmental issues, with a main goal relaying on the promotion of cooperation and solidarity, and the exchange of ideas and education.
What characterises Ecological Celebration is that local producers will participate with naturally grown quality vegetables and legumes (without chemicals and fertilizers), naturally prepared health products made with respect towards nature (no animal testing), ecological products (cleaning products-cosmetics) as well as handcrafters.
Everyone is welcome, organisations and groups that are active in promoting ecological matters such as natural cultivations and organic growers; creators of urban vegetable gardens; recycling initiatives; environmental educational programs; as well as awareness on health issues and workshops will also take part. Visitors will have the chance to discuss and receive all the information they want about these initiatives.
During the day several production workshops take place, a cultural program will be organised, a kid’s corner with activities related to ecological matters as well as presentations in which specialists briefly present their topic, followed by dialogue and exchange of views with the attendants.
This Ecological Celebration is organised by groups in cooperation with other organizations on the basis of self-organisation, volunteer work and collectiveness. The income from the event is used to cover all the expenses and to create a fund to further develop this initiative towards a healthier collective future for all.
Hoping to present Ecological Celebration as a yearly happening, organising it every year in a different city of Cyprus and in the long run to organise local Ecological Celebrations in all the cities simultaneously.
Through this Celebration the organisations support the direct relationship between producer and consumer; natural quality food for all; products sourced locally; affordable and fair prices; processing by traditional methods; aiming reconnection with nature and distancing from industrialization and the illogical commercialization of everything; and a move towards the collective and cooperation.
