In this week's lifestyle article, we'll tell you about something very special that will happen in Porto — the EcoolFest Festival!
The Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis is hosting the first "EcoolFest", a sustainability festival that will take place on July 8. The event will feature a series of activities promoting sustainability and environmental awareness.
EcoolFest is an event that celebrates sustainability with various activities aiming to educate and inspire people to care for the planet. The event will feature multiple activities, including concerts, an eco-friendly marketplace, roundtable discussions with experts in the field, POP-UP performances, children's activities, and a cooking show.
The eco-friendly market will feature a variety of sustainable products. Exhibitors will be available for conversation and information about their products and how they are produced.
Roundtable discussions will allow experts in the field to share their experiences and knowledge on different sustainability discussion topics and how each person can contribute to preserving the environment. Participants will be able to ask questions and be part of discussions on these topics.
We can expect two cooking shows focused on zero waste. It will be a time for participants to realize how they can make their kitchens the most sustainable area of their homes. The participants will present ways to have a more environmentally friendly kitchen without losing flavor, using creative recipes and zero-waste techniques.
