BVI Go Green Festival 2010

Recently I came across an amazing event in a place that's very dear to my heart. The British Virgin Islands (BVI) in the majestic Caribbean Sea. Having lived in the Virgin Islands, I fully appreciate everything about these magical islands…the beautiful weather, pristine beaches, colorful culture and laid-back lifestyle. So I was overjoyed to learn about the recent swell of progressive energy in the Green movement in the BVI. And at the forefront is Abby O'Neal, founder of the 1st Annual BVI Go Green Festival on June 25 & 26, 2010. She believes that the BVI is small enough at 64 sq miles of total land mass and with a population of just under 30,000 to be the Greenest or most Carbon Neutral Territory on the planet. Her goal is to send a shock wave to the people of the BVI, giving them their very own “An Inconvenient Truth.”


The BVI Go Green Festival is a 2 day celebration taking place in the Go Green Village and at Noel Lloyd Park on the gorgeous island of Tortola. The schedule is packed with tons of interesting presentations, including The Growing Green Fair, Local & Organic Food Fair, Seminars & Panel discussions, Speakers, and to close out the Friday schedule…a Reggae and Calypso Concert. Headlining the show are soulful Grammy Winner Joss Stone and the “High Priest of Reggae” (and one of my personal faves) Jah Cure. This will be an unforgettable show…and hopefully the first of many more to come!


And as if this festival wasn't impressive already, they are also committed to making the entire event as sustainable as possible. While many events and tradeshows are notoriously wasteful, BVI Go Green Festival demonstrates an unmatched commitment to having the smallest footprint of any event of its kind ever staged in the BVI. Through the efforts of their organizing team and volunteers and meticulous sorting procedures to reduce, reuse, recycle and compost, they estimate that some 50% of all show waste will not enter mainstream waste disposal in the BVI. Don't you love it when people practice what they preach!


The Virgin Islands are one of the most pure and breathtaking places on earth and it makes me so happy to see that they intend on keeping it that way. I only wish I had heard of this event sooner, so I could have gone. Perhaps I can rally a whole crew of people to attend next year’s festival! Anyone….???
