Join us on 11 and 12 October 2014 at the Strawberry Earth Fair! For two days we're transforming the Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam into a forest paradise packed with the latest in sustainable fashion, design, film and food. Get your hands on products from our favourite brands. Explore our 'Design of the Future' expo. Get your hands dirty during our adventurous workshops. And prepare for some serious hipshaking at our afterparty.
Strawberry Earth organises memorable events, which inspire and excite you to make sustainable choices. By introducing our fans to innovative brands as well as talented speakers, artists, DJs and musicians we're able to show how easy and fun it is to live sustainably. We believe that every choice you make can have a positive impact on the world and Strawberry Earth events are a celebration of that.
In 2012 the final of our Green Film Making Competition took place. We're incredibly proud of all the participants! Really well done to second place winners behind the film Balance and, of course, the official Green Film Maker of the Year 2012: Trent and Anielle Webster for their film 'Leven'! photos by Daria Mnych.
On 23 November 2011 we launched our brand new initiative: Strawberry Earth Deals - a website featuring great products and amazing experiences from our favourite sustainable brands. We celebrated the moment by hosting a special Strawberry dinner at TrouwAmsterdam and organising the Strawberry Earth Roller Disco!
In 2011 we launched a very exciting and big project at our festival: Europe's first Green Film Making Competition! Each year we screen the very best films and documentaries about our planet and host several inspirational speakers.
The Strawberry Earth Film Festival is also a platform for lots of creative and green organisations as well as memorable parties featuring musical talent from the European DJ and live music scene.
On Sunday 17 October 2010, we launched Strawberry Earth Wonderland, the Netherlands' first eco fashion, art and music fair. The event was held in TrouwAmsterdam and we were blown away by the response. We were completely sold out and featured on Dutch tv news, national newspapers, fashion magazines and blogs - eco fashion is most definitely hot! We hosted 30 of Europe's best and brightest eco fashion talent and art exhibitors, there were fashion shows, fashion and beauty workshops, a 'fashion blogger camp' and live music from Swedish electro rockers The Amplifetes, Swedish DJ of the year in 2009 DJ Style of Eye and DJ Aardvarck.
On 4, 5 and 6 June, 2010 Strawberry Earth organised The Strawberry Earth Film Festival 2010 in Studio/K in Amsterdam and Lantaren/Venster in Rotterdam. We screened over 25 films including several national premieres, held the country’s first Green Filmmaking Workshop and gave a platform to several young and green organisations. We also held our inaugural Award Dinner and presented the Golden Strawberry Award to the winning film DIVE!
On 27 January 2010 Strawberry Earth ended a successful year of events with the Strawberry Earth Quiz Night: "Embrace the Freaks of Nature"! Hosted by Quiz Master Maxim Hartman and his sparkling assistant Tim den Besten, the quiz night was a celebration of the purpose and beauty of biodiversity. We beamed 15m high live twitter feeds on buildings in Amsterdam in the build up to the quiz night and everyone who took part on the night itself had a lot of fun: Stevendepeven with his Aanwijstsokjes.
On 16 January, 2010 Strawberry Earth organised a unique event in Hotel V, Amsterdam. We invited our favourite green brands and lots of our artistic friends to create themed hotel rooms and held a massive party in the lobby. But… in return for organising a phenomenal night of eco partying at the hotel we asked the owners to use all the money raised to make their businesses eco friendlier. Mission accomplished :)...
