EcoWest EcoFest North

The EcoWest Festival is happening again for 2015 with a month-long series of events from March 15 – April 12 which is inspired by the Eco City way of life, and organised by EcoMatters Environment Trust.

The EcoWest Festival is the ultimate celebration of the leadership role Waitakere has played in creatively engaging citizens in environmental restoration and sustainable lifestyles since the early 90s when we became the world’s first Eco City.

The events will be hosted by innovative environmental organisations, businesses, sustainability experts and creative entrepreneurs who embrace eco ideas through their work.
