Organizers of Envision Festival are leaders of a sustainable permaculture movement that is blossoming throughout Costa Rica.
Envision is an annual gathering in Costa Rica that seeks to provide a platform for different cultures to inspire one another to co-create sustainable community and practice yoga, spirituality, art, music, dance performance, education and acknowledge our fundamental connection with nature.
With initiatives such as banning single use tableware in lieu of bamboo and banana leaf alternatives, a festival wide composting system, green building and multiple spaces dedicated entirely to environmental education, it is clear that the intention runs deep. Costa Rica, a world leader in eco-local awareness, serves as the perfect backdrop for such initiatives and the festival itself is designed to provide an example of a style of communal living that is more attainable than ever in an impressively hospitable living and lush growing environment.
The festival shows Costa Rica to the world as a leader in eco-local consciousness. By using local vendors and suppliers for everything from building materials to organic produce and artwork, the community involvement will enrich each guest's individual experiences. Promoting local businesses builds sustainable prosperity for the local community.
Envision has partnered with Community Carbon Trees and has helped to contribute at least the equivalent of 5% of all ticket sales to support their cause.
A festival takes place in the 'Southern Zone' of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. A truly magical place where the rain forested mountains meet the warm pacific ocean. The zone exemplifies exotic paradise – boasting a wealth of adventure and exploration amidst verdant jungle and warm ocean waters. As the most biodiverse place on Earth, it literally buzzes with life. "Envision is a Leave No Trace event, and we therefore always leave the land in as good if not better condition than we found it," said the organizers.
