EcoMatters Environment Trust Kaipatiki Project

One month. Two festivals.

Packed full of action, ideas and inspiration about all things environmentally and sustainably good

EcoWest EcoFest North

The EcoWest Festival happened in 2014 with a month-long series of events from March 15 – April 13 which inspire the Eco City way of life, organised by EcoMatters Environment Trust.

The EcoWest Festival was 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 were hosted by innovative environmental organisations, businesses, sustainability experts and creative entrepreneurs who embrace eco ideas through their work.
