The Village for Ecological and Social Justice at the 2015 Ness Creek Music Festival

The Saskatchewan Eco Network is very excited to be co-coordinating this year's "The Village" for ecological and social justice (formerly known as the Eco-Village)! The Ness Creek Music Festival will be celebrating its 25th anniversary year this July 16th – 19th in the beautiful boreal forest 12 km from Big River, Saskatchewan. Over the last quarter of a century, Ness Creek has grown into a major Canadian music festival, drawing 4,000 people over four days to enjoy music, dance, theatre, art, culture and community. We invite you to be a part of this anniversary celebration by participating in “The Village."

This year’s Village is hoping to get back to the roots of its predecessor, the Eco-Village, by giving non- and for-profit organizations with ecological mandates and solutions the chance to display, promote, workshop, discuss and sell their ideas and services with festival-goers. While traditional table displays are always welcome, we are especially interested in innovative green technologies and interactive displays that invite festival-goers to participate, learn a new skill, or otherwise actively engage. Similarly, if you would like to elect to bring something more active like a nature tour, product demo, or anything else that takes advantage of the beautiful area we'd love to hear your ideas and work something out with you.

Vendor guidelines for "The Village" can be found here. Note that non-profit organizations receive a 50% deduction in the vendor fee, and members of the Saskatchewan Eco-Network, a major partner in this year's festival, receive an additional $20 deduction ($205 for for-profits and $92.50 for non-profits. If you are not already and would like to become a SEN member, please email info@econet.sk.ca).

Interested participants are encouraged to apply on-line by visiting nesscreek.com, and following the links "Get Involved" and "Be A Vendor." Alternately, you can reach the online application form directly by following this link here

Any questions can be directed to The Village coordinators Mike Wolsfeld (info@econet.sk.ca) and Irena Smith (irena.smith@hotmail.com).

We hope to see you at the 2015 Ness Creek Music Festival!

SEN World Rivers Day Festival 2014!

A big thanks goes out to the festival sponsors, SaskWater, Loraas, Meewasin Valley Authority, CFCR, and Danger Dynamite Multimedia along with everyone who helped with festival planning for making this event possible!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for a chilly day in the park to celebrate our beautiful river system and all it provides for us. The Paddlewheelers and Rayney brought some fantastic music for all in attendance throughout the afternoon. It was great to see the displays from all of our participants, the Saskatoon Zoo Society, the Safe Drinking Water Foundation, the South Saskatchewan River Watershed Stewards, the City of Saskatoon, Partners for the Saskatchewan River Basin, Meewasin Valley Authority, the Girl Guides, and the Global Institute for Water Security. Plastic Smart Saskatoon organized a river clean-up for festival attendees.

SEN 2014 Environmental Film Festival

Thanks to everyone who helped make SEN's "Fuel the Change" Environmental Film Festival a success this April! It was a fun packed weekend of films, workshops, discussions and more. It was a great opportunity for the people of Saskatchewan to get together, network and participate in discussions about environmental issues in our province and beyond. A special thanks to all of the amazing sponsors and our member groups for making such a great community event possible.

Want to know how you can get involved next year? Have suggestions for films you would like to see in our festival? For answers to those questions and any other questions you might have, please contact info@econet.sk.ca or phone our office at: (306) 652-1275
