Go Green Hip-Hop Tour

Wednesday June 24, 2009 to Saturday June 27, 2009

The mission of the Go Green Hip-Hop Tour is to include and engage the Hip-Hop community in the international discussion around “green” solutions and healthy lifestyles

Using a grassroots approach in each city, we are connecting families, local growers, green businesses, environmental experts, health providers, community organizations and civic leaders to Hip-Hop culture as a key element in raising awareness and building momentum around the food, health and environment changes we need to thrive in our communities.

In continuing to utilize Hip-Hop art and culture as a powerful force of inspiration and as an effective organizing tool, this year G.A.ME launches the first Go Green Hip-Hop Tour with Readnex Poetry Squad.
