Greens on the Green
Islington Green, London N1
July 13, 2013 from 11am to 7pm
EIA’s Greens on the Green fair will take place on Islington Green, London on July 13, 2013 – and you’re invited!
We hope this summer event will provide a platform to meet supporters and introduce new people to our work through a mix of films, talks, music and general jollity.
The day’s activities will be based around our film tent where, for the first time ever, the four National Geographic-commissioned documentaries about our work will be screened all in one day, along with an introduction to EIA, a segment on our beginnings and a number of other campaign films.
EIA campaigners will be on hand to chat throughout the day, with some also giving talks, and here will be food and cake stalls, something for the kids and live music from some fantastic bands.

Go undercover with EIA as our investigators follow the ivory trade from the appalling slaughter of elephants in Africa to the chief end-user market of China, where we uncover intelligence suggesting the Chinese Government itself may be gaming the system to cash in on Blood Ivory.
The film is one of four made for National Geographic about EIA’s work, and will be screened free at Greens on the Green tomorrow …

Bring out the tiger in you and help a great cause with this jungle-inspired tiger tent.
Based on a painting by the 2012 BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year Finalist, Claudia Hahn, Nightwatch is a tiger-themed tent unlike any other!
Not only can you camp in style, but you can do so in the knowledge that all profits from the sale of the Nightwatch tent will go directly to targeted tiger conservation initiatives.
Nightwatch will be on display at Greens on the Green. Profits from the sale of FieldCandy’s Nightwatch tents will support the efforts of EIA and the Born Free Foundation.
