About this event

This festival is one of a kind! Forget stale job fairs and career expos, let’s celebrate the vibrancy and array of opportunities the green sector has to offer. Did you know that ‘green jobs’ might mean working in fashion, retail, design, mental health, entrepreneurship, transport or even beer brewing?!

Find out more from our selection of expert speakers, workshops and interviews, against a backdrop of music, networking and more. All taking place across 3 stages that embrace the best of sustainability, alternative careers and green culture. Forest Fest is a party for all.

Forest Fest is a day festival in Waltham Forest which sets the stage for aspiring young people who wish to enter the world of sustainability and green jobs, as well as delivering a safe and welcoming event for our diverse audience and attendees. Our aim is to make sustainability simple.

Whether you’re here to grab a bite, or mingle with your local community, we’ll have the perfect event lined up for you and your friends.
