Conscious Festival 2019 in Hong Kong
Regenerative Resorts was honored to have Co-founder Amanda Ho be invited to speak at The Conscious Festival in Hong Kong, hosted by Green Is The New Black from April 13-14, 2019. Green Is The New Black touts itself as “...your guide to discover the most conscious brands, events, experiences and people around Asia…” With their mission of helping people connect with themselves and others, The Conscious Festival 2019 was a culmination of their efforts in sustainability and environmental awareness in business practices and personal choices.
Bringing together 50 thought leaders in sustainable industries as speakers and workshop leaders, along with 80 sustainable brands in a conscious marketplace and over 3,600 attendees, the festival was truly a meeting of the minds. The Festival was divided into four sessions, each focusing on a different area of consciousness. They included “LIVE - Altruism & Resilience”, “WORK - Intrapreneurship for Good”, “CONSUME - Slowing down!”, and “TRAVEL - Out(inn)er Exploration”.
Speaking during the final session, Ho’s panel also featured Anke Voermans Ruaydee, Founder and Builder of ASALANTA; Stefano Passarello, Managing Director of Hawksford; and Nikki Pang, Head of Guest Communications for Lightfoot Travel. Together, the group discussed the challenges of developing an eco-hotel, trends in responsible travel and the mindset of the conscious traveler in a talk titled “Eco Resorts and Eco Travel”.
