Walking the Daisies (WTD) is annual 2-day hike event to the music festival Rocking the Daisies in Cape Town. The event has become a platform to create a fun, creative and interactive space for raising awareness, education & support around issues such as global warming and environmental degradation, while taking into account social issues such as unemployment, poverty and inequality that prevail in the South African context. WTD is now a widely acclaimed event that supplements the Rocking the Daisies festival’s aim to reduce their carbon footprint, create and promote positive environmental action, facilitate conscious dialog and raise awareness about the social and environmental challenges.
Every year WTD takes approximately 150 walkers through an experience involving environmental education, beach-cleanups, plastic campaign awareness, guest speakers, yoga and meditation and community engagement and upliftment projects. The WTD event is zero-waste, with all waste being recycled, ecobricked or turned into compost. A big component of the walk is that all food served is vegan and vegetarian.
