The Green Market And Green Vibes

A total of 76 NGOs and green businesses participated in this year’s Green Market and we are happy to hear that many of them were positive with the reception from the public. Similarly Green Vibes, which was held at the Bee Publika ended the KLEFF Sunday night with a big bang with an awesome selection of local line up. The Venopian Solitude session packed the entire floor of the Bee, much to the delight of the KLEFF Secretariat.

The Performances, Workshops And Exhibitions

The Performances, Workshops And Exhibitions

Christine Das’ and Alena Murang’s nature-inspired art exhibition was definitely a hit with the general public. Held at White Box, both local artists showcased their beautiful works of art as their commitment and contribution to spreading environmental awareness. In addition, the Square Publika hosted a range of local musicians, performers and even cultural groups. The KLEFF would not be complete without the arrangement of impressive fringe performers at the festival. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and you can view some of the performers on our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/EcoKnights.

In addition, many of the workshops were popular with the public especially the one on Vegetable Farming for Children and a talk on Aquaponics. We hope to continuously provide the public with engaging programs, workshops and activities that inspire sustainable living. If you have an awesome idea for a workshop, talk or exhibition next year, come talk to us or email us at .

Overall, the festival achieved its targets and we will continue to strive to deliver the best environmental films, activities and programs, for more Malaysians in the following years. You can click on this link to read what Clean Malaysia wrote about the festival.
