Our Efforts in 2020


In 2020 Envision Festival formed “Somos El Cambio,”  a non-profit association which aims to raise and channel funds towards projects that benefit the immediate community as well as Costa Rica nationally. Here are a few of the efforts we've coordinated over the last year:

  • 7,760 trees planted towards our 10k tree goal for 2020
  • $17,000 worth of medical equipment donated to the local hospital in Ciudad Cortes for COVID relief efforts
  • $5,000 to a local food bank to support families in need during the COVID crisis 
  • 4,000 trees donated to the local water Association to restore 6 hectares of water springs that feed water to all of Uvita and the surrounding areas
  • Planted ~230 trees during the festival with help from headliner artists such as Clozee, Be Svendsen, as well as envision attendees, influencers and staff. 
  • Formed lasting alliances with local government associations such as ICE, MINAE, ASADA and Costas Verdes to coordinate tree donations and support future initiatives

Rated ¾ - “Highly Commended” in 2020

A Greener Festival

AGF Assessor Summary:  “Envision Festival has excelled in terms of Local Community Impacts, Management Systems and External Reach and Behavioural Change. They are committed to motivating a positive transformation in their audience, and the atmosphere and vibration at the festival was amazing. The talks and workshops, yoga and healing areas, the music and art and collaboration with local environmental charities all inspired major environmental and social awareness among the audience. The Eco-Hub, the volunteers and the Sustainable Dish program worked together to keep the site incredibly clean at all times. The tree planting ceremony and the beach clean-up are such terrific ways of enhancing the local ecosystem that are producing results year on year. The procurement policies were admirable, with the vast majority of all consumables obtained fairly and sustainably from the local community, and emphasis on "Maker to Consumer". The impact that that festival has had on the municipality with regard to upgrading the water infrastructure and educating them in safe event systems was excellent. The Envision management team are thinking and acting in many ways to become fully sustainable and Earth Positive.”

Publication Testimonials

EDM Maniac

"A groundbreaking experience aimed at changing the way we understand our fundamental connection with nature"


"I had heard tell of the seemingly mythical Envision Festival situated where the jungle meets the Pacific Ocean in Uvita, Costa Rica, but stories about a music festival couldn’t possibly have prepared me for the “expansive and thoughtful celebration of creation, dance, yoga, art, nature, healthy living, and sustainability” that comprised the magical reality of this experience."


"It's not just about dancing to the music, but learning lifestyle practices that can make a lasting change in your life and in society at large."


"Envision at its core is an inspiration for tropical utopian community.”
