Thursday, October 12, 2017

Does it seem like your weekend is often less relaxing than weekdays? With all the demands around the house and the kids protesting against boredom, it’s “strange” that you don’t always feel productive.

That’s why we’re here to give you a few activities that will keep the young ones occupied, and most importantly, allows you to take a breather whilst watching the kids have fun.

1. KLEFF 2017

Organised by EcoKnights, Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival is a non-profit endeavour aimed to catalyse and mobilise the adoption of sustainable living through the power of audio-visual content. The festival is a week long programme with exciting activities, catered to people from all walks of life.

Natural Tie-Dye

We will demonstrate how you can up cycle a dull white tee shirt into a tie-dye beauty!

Pop Up Farms in the City

Food is our direct connection to nature and as the saying goes, you are what you eat! Join this interactive , hands-on workshop where we will discuss our relationship to food and why it’s becoming more and more important to bring our food sources closer to where we live. Believe it or not, what and how you choose to eat can affect big things – like the climate! But fear not, because “all of the world’s problems can be solved in the garden” – if we can learn to grow the food we need, what need is there for us to take away from other people and other living things on this planet, right?
