If you want to learn something important, it ............. better be fun.
Thatís what the founder of the Supernatural organization thinks about their unique way to spread the word about the environmental issues that have changed the way our cities look in the last decade.
Before you ask, Supernatural has nothing to do with vampires or fairies in this context. It refers to an organization that, for the last twelve years, had focused on raising awareness about topics such as recycling, waste management and renewable energy, briefly, the environment. They thought that one of the best ways to get young people involved in those matters is ........... creating a music festival that promoted having a sustainable lifestyle. I thought I should give it a try last year, when I suddenly became very interested about our planet.
The Supernatural festival takes place in Belgrade every april. It was my first time outside the country borders, so that was pretty scary, but the thought of having the chance to see so many people who cared about the same things as I did was totally amazing. I didnít really care about the line-up, cause I didnít come for the music, and I knew I wouldnít pay for anything exquisit music-wise. I didnít even pay at all. They came up with a brilliant payment method; everyone had to bring their trash: plastic bottles, cans, paper, and they would be free to go. The trash had been used to power the audio systems and the very few lights they used. All the concerts happened during the day so there was no extra light used and all the products inside were completely ecological: local producers, biodegradable packaging... Everything was for the benefit of nature.
During the festival days, I even had the chance to participate in a number of various workshops held by ecological groups. I learnt about the dissapointing situation weíre in and all the possible ways to make it a little better. They really started this big desire in me to do the best for the unique mother planet we have, for our future, for our kids...
Now, one year apart, I have to admit: the founder was right. The best way to learn something is making it in a fun way. Even if the environmental issues weíre facing arenít fun at all, the idea of the Supernatural festival is something that should happen in every country around the world.

I do wish such a festival existed in our country! Nowadays, pollution is a huge problem, so organizing a music event that revolves around recycling and protecting the environment is an awesome idea. And using garbage as ticket fee and fuel for various equipment is a great way to kill 2 birds with one stone. I liked your composition, not only for the subject but also because of how you described the festival. Nice job!

In my opinion, this organization is extremely useful and it does a great deal to society. They really started this great desire in me to do the best for the unique mother planet we have, for our future, for our kids ... The best way to learn something is making it a fun way. Even if the environmental issues we're facing are not fun, the idea of the Supernatural festival is something that should happen in every country around the world.
