Green Oasis Activities

Being a member of the “EcofestAfrica EFA” circuit, which is a network of eco-responsible festivals, the Taragalte Festival is committed to an eco-responsible approach, and waste management is a major issue in the organization. From October 28 to 30, we work with our partners on the collection and sorting of waste. We are also counting on festival-goers to keep their space clean, and to throw waste and cigarette ends in the right places.
