More and more people lead a healthy lifestyle and understand their responsibility for the prosperous future of the Earth. At the festival "Green Week in Moscow" the speakers will present their programmes and projects, which reflect this multi-faceted approach to the concept of ecology.

During the Green Week there will be eco-movie nights: "Proper nutrition as foundation of life" and "Bicycle, the transport of the future". Experienced travelers will tell us how to organise an eco-friendly trip and inform about a new media project "Velopolis". The project is about journeys on a bicycle in Moscow, Russia and beyond. "Velopolis" will show us unusual routes full of amazing places, events and people and will open a world full of parks, forests, rivers, lakes, adventures and emotions!

Pupils and visitors of Moscow Zoo are welcome to join lectures in frame of the project "School composter", where the coordinators will tell them how to create a model for sustainable waste management at school.
