Independent event organizers have been supporting the Greenskate cause since 2007! Our mission is to promote longboarding as a effective form of environmentally friendly transportation and recreation. Greenskate was founded in Calgary Canada amongst a handful of friends. Since then we’ve watched it grow to over 50 cities in 5 continents. Now entering it’s fifth year, we are excited to watch the movements continued growth.
This year we are trying to grow the event even more, we will be trying to get more media attention, more organizers and events than ever before. Traditionally GreenSkate takes place on earth day. This year we are adding a second date to allow organizers in colder climates an opportunity to host a successful event. In addition to Earth Day (April 22nd) GreenSkate can also be held on June 5th, the United Nations World Environment Day.
How do I organize an event?
GreenSkate.org is a network to support independent organizers around the globe and showcase everyones events with video, pictures and articles. Hosting your own Greenskate is easy! You can go for a cruise, host a freeride at a local hill, or even a community project like cleaning up garbage.
GreenSkate is an opensource event. Every organizer has complete freedom to make their event as small, large or elaborate as they want. Events all over the world range from small groups of freinds to hundreds of people taking over their cities streets!
If you would like to register an event please fill out our registration form and we will post your events details on our site. We love getting pictures, videos and write ups about your events before and after they happen.
