From 27 to 29 September, the International Exhibition Centre in Ķīpsala will host Green Expo Riga 2019, the first green economy and lifestyle fair/festival in Latvia. Under one roof, the event will offer green brands and companies, eco-friendly products and services, as well as educational and exciting events for all: families with children, healthy lifestyle advocates, entrepreneurs and industry specialists.
“We aim to develop the ideas of green economy in Latvia, promote their introduction into practical business and popularise a green, healthy lifestyle. Therefore, Green Expo Riga 2019 will focus on the personal efforts of companies and people: choosing products and services that are friendly to the environment and humans. We have many good green examples around us, and we want to highlight them in order to inspire people to change their daily life and become friendlier to nature,” says Jānis Brinkmanis, Director of Green Expo Riga.
Three days, three topics: experience, information, inspiration!
Each day of the fair/festival will be dedicated to a different topic. Green Expo Riga 2019 will offer various events on the central stage, at the stands and outside the hall: presentations, lectures, discussions, conversations and different activities that will be interesting to youths and families with children too.
On 27 September, Green Economy Day will be of particular interest to entrepreneurs, specialists and representatives of green associations and organisations for gaining new knowledge and inspiration for their future work. On the central stage and at the stands, companies will be presenting innovative eco-friendly solutions for various industries, while practitioners will share their experiences at export markets and foreign green trade fairs. The visitors will be able to draw knowledge and inspiration from examples of good practice: how to create sustainable companies by cooperating with foreign partners, attracting green investments and innovating. We will also be organising discussions on various eco-ideas together with Latvian and foreign experts, entrepreneurs and representatives of government institutions, associations, etc.
On 28 September, Green Health Day will focus on a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Visitors will have a chance to consult with specialists on creating a healthy work-life balance, learn practical tips on following healthy lifestyle principles and be inspired by examples of good practice when it comes to personal growth and harmony.
Whereas company representatives and other enthusiasts will be able to learn from the good example of other companies: taking care of their employees’ growth and health, solving environmental quality issues and building a team for starting a green business. The various sports activities will challenge everyone to test their abilities.
29 September will be Green Family Day with the autumn harvest festival, shopping at the organic farmers’ market, attractions and practical wisdom for a greener life. Everyone – youths, families with children, seniors and all supporters of green ideas – is welcome to celebrate the autumn harvest day on Michaelmas with participation in various masterclasses and a jolly good time!
In addition, public figures, experts and specialists will participate in discussions on improving, renovating, managing and gardening traditional farmsteads, as well as give advice and answer questions. Anyone will be able to draw inspiration from green practice examples at households and families. We will explore important questions, such as: How do you combine tried and tested traditional values with the global challenges of the modern world? How do you preserve balance in nature, human relationships, economy and long-term green policies?
On all days of Green Expo Riga 2019, alongside the events on the central stage, fair visitors will find eco- and human-friendly solutions for a better, greener life and sustainable business at the expositions of the fair participants.
From June to August, informative seminars “How to Participate at Green Expo Riga 2019 for Free” will take place in Liepāja, Valmiera, Jelgava and Rēzekne with the aim of engaging representatives of new, green educational projects in the creation of the fair’s programme. Stay tuned!
