ZOH GIORTH: A two day festival on homesteading and self-sufficiency

During the weekend of 11-12th of June, Nea Guinea organizes the festival ZOH GIORTH (life as a celebration), with the goals of:

  • promoting the ideas and practices of a sustainable way of life based on solidarity and cooperation.
  • supporting the creation of solidarity economy infrastructures, through which the relationship between producer and consumer is redefined on the basis of trust and transparency.
  • informing and promoting debates on current social and environmental issues.
  • promoting the exchange of knowledge and practical skills relating to basic needs for a greater degree of self-sufficiency in our daily life.

The festival includes an exhibition and market of organic products, presentations, informative events and practical workshops, through which producers and processors will share with the participants their knowledge and skills. At the same time, the festival will be surrounded with musical and theatrical performances and activities for children.

In order to get to know each other through our initiatives, to share all that we love and move forwards!

Location: Association of Greek Archaeologists, Ermou 134, Thiseio
