Golden Days Festival Surfrider Eco Challenge

The Golden Days Surfrider Eco Challenge 2013 is a free community event located in Tickle Park, Coolum Beach on Sunday, November 10. It is a follow-up event to the Golden Days Music Festival held on Saturday November 9.
Eco Challenge 2013 will feature live bands, a wooden surfboard event, an awesome skate jam, giant kites and drumming on the beach, interactive art & workshops, and an eco village.
The Eco Challenge at Golden Days Festival generates a unique opportunity to communicate on a large scale the sustainability principles and how they are transformed into actions. The day promotes sustainable living, culture and products, through local groups and business, presenting alternatives to common consumer goods.  Ultimately it is to raise awareness about Surfrider Foundation's local efforts and highlighting local coastal issues, including Surfrider's major campaign 'RISE ABOVE PLASTICS”. A call to all people young and old, to think about how we can make a difference, and stop our oceans from turning into a plastic soup.
It’s all about enjoying what we have at our doorstep and having fun. So we have created a great line-up of events to make the perfect follow up day to the iconic music festival. Few people use or enjoy the ocean as much as surfers and locals, so we are calling upon our local community and friends from far and wide to engage, enjoy life and protect what we love: the waves, oceans and beaches.
Another defining feature of the day will be our ‘pledge wall’, where we engage the community to have their photo taken with their own personal pledge on how they will help to ‘rise above plastics’.
Simple local actions can help make an impact to solve this global issue. It will be a cool opportunity for people to take home a photo of the day of their pledge to ‘make a difference’, to be a voice for our marine wildlife and act as coastal stewards to ensure the health and integrity of our ocean and coastline.
Everyone is invited to come and enjoy this dynamic, FREE community event have an exceptional time together!
It’s going to be great day in Cool town so come and chill out with us.
