Education and awareness is the first step toward building a sustainable planet.

The ultimate goal is to make Los Cabos a 100% green destination and serve as an example to the world.
Green Fest will also feature conferences and interactive workshops centered around essential sustainability themes and global awareness education. Top names in sustainability issues will participate and lead these conferences, including our keynote speaker Charly Alberti, founder of Revolucion 21 and the classic rock group Soda Stereo. His conference “Climate Change and the Solution” will tackle large-scale climate change issues, while the “Towards a Sustainable World” project will invite local school children and the youth community in Los Cabos to participate in Green Fest by providing an interactive workshop contest centered around environmental themes.
Together with the State Government, Charly Alberti will unite the entire community of Los Cabos in a pledge to protect and preserve the environment. Together we can help prevent climate change.
Festival attendees and participants will help generate most of the energy needed to power Green Fest’s concerts, conferences, Expo, and beach activities using Pedal Power bikes, which are specially designed to generate energy through pedaling. Participants of all ages and sizes will be able to take part through these fully-adjustable machines.
Attendees participating in the Pedal Power program generate energy that can be measured in watts, calories, and carbon footprint (waste). If one person pedals for one hour at an average of 100 watts per hour, that person will burn 360 calories. If 12 bicycles are pedaled for a total of 7 hours during a music concert, participants will burn more than 30,000 calories and generate 8,400 watts of energy, saving 6.2 kilograms of carbon footprint that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.
Our philosophy is to produce only memories and lasting environmental awareness during the Cabo Green Fest. All trash accumulated during the festival will be 100% recycled. One of the festival’s main objectives is to demonstrate how even large-scale productions can be 100% sustainable and help conserve the natural resources of the planet.
