Friday 15 March – Sunday 14 April 2024

EcoFest is an annual month-long festival celebrating the unique environment of Tāmaki Makaurau and how we care for it. Each year, the programme is packed with events, activities, installations and workshops for people of all ages and at any stage of their sustainability journey. From composting workshops to silent disco clean-ups, EcoFest’s aim is to make sustainability fun and accessible, inspiring people to make simple changes to reduce their impact on the environment. The festival programme will be released late February 2024.

For the second year running, EcoFest will be held Auckland-wide as a collaboration between EcoMatters Environment Trust, Kaipatiki Project on the North Shore, Beautification Trust in South Auckland and Waiheke Resources Trust.

Hosting an event is a great opportunity to share your environmental knowledge, reach new audiences and recruit new volunteers.
