Posidonia Green Festival, for those who want to end the summer by dedicating attention to the environment and the sea, in particular, where many spend their holidays and then forget to preserve their health in the remaining months of work elsewhere. It is not only the sea, the protagonist of the Posidonia Green Festival, from 1 to 3 September in Santa Margherita Ligure, but they are all those who care about nature and want to deepen opportunities for sustainable tourism and responsible consumption by turning to an exhibition animated by concerts, screenings, conferences, workshops and many outdoor activities.

The Posidonia Green Festival, in its third edition, was born in defense of Posidonia oceanica. If the name does not sound known, here is the secret: it is a plant that hosts most of the marine biodiversity in the Mediterranean Sea, precious because it protects the coasts and beaches from erosion

It is organized aiming at minimal paper consumption and the use of biodegradable plastics, the decorations were made in recycled material and on every day electric public transport is promoted, they eat plocal products at zero km and you do the recycling.
