Powered by Holland & Barrett, The Conscious Festival by Green Is The New Black is returning to The Lion City on 2 – 3 November 2019. The fifth edition will take place at South Beach, a sprawling eco-lifestyle destination in the heart of Singapore.

The festival’s famous marketplace is growing and will feature more than 100 mindful brands, transformative talks, delicious and healthy eats, organic alcohol, interactive art, and games with a purpose. Every year, the biggest takeaway for guests is walking away armed with #LittleGreenSteps that will carry them forward in their journey towards a more sustainable life.

Inspired by an expedition to the Arctic Circle earlier this year where Green Is The New Black co-founders Stephanie Dickson and Paula Miquelis witnessed the effects of global warming firsthand, the 2019 edition of The Conscious Festival is themed Climate Change is Real.
