GREEN INFLUENCE ECO WORKSHOPS
Travelling to Siem Reap? Want to leave a green footprint during your stay?
The Green Influence Eco Workshops are for you!The Green Influence Eco Workshops is a project initiated by The Soulcial Trust combining environmental awareness workshops and touristic activities. Siem Reap, gateway to the Angkor Temples, is a major touristic city in Cambodia. However, like the whole country, Siem Reap suffers from pollution and the non-preservation of its environment.

You will be able to attend environmental workshops conducted by the different partners involved in the project!
