About the Green and Healthy Festival
The annual Green and Healthy Festival aims to raise awareness that the ways we live can boost our health and the sustainability of our dear Planet Earth.
The Green and Healthy Festival originated from our pledge for a wholesome, sustainable and cancer-free Singapore in 2013 during the 5th Holistic Wellness Symposium graced by GOH Mr Heng Swee Kiat.
The co-organisers, Kampung Senang Charity and Education Foundation and Eco Harmony Global Network, a Social Enterprise, both strongly believe that Green and Healthy Living is something everyone in the community can do to make the pledge come true!
In 2015, one of our Board members , Dr George Jacobs , connected us with Humane Society International (HIS). We invited HSI to jointly kickstart the first Green and Healthy Festival in 2016, held at Singapore Expo. More than six thousand people attended. We also earned a place in the Singapore Book of Records when hundreds simultaneously enjoyed drinking green smoothies in the finale to this healthy and joyful event.
We continued the Festival yearly in 2017, 2018 and 2019, reaching out to more than 20 thousand visitors with our Green and Healthy charity fairs and our Holistic Wellness Seminars. Plus, we continued to set new Singapore records.
In 2020, the Green and Healthy Festival went virtual to continue our vital work despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The Holistic Wellness Seminar was transformed to an online webinar.
With the government’s new emphasis towards sustainability. We had minister for environment and sustainability to launch our 2020 virtual event
This year, 2021, we continue to build on and enhance our efforts with the 6th annual Green and Healthy Festival and the 14th Holistic Wellness Seminar. Our theme this year is “Embrace, Empower and Enhance Our Future!”
