What is Rhythms of Rimba?

Rhythms of Rimba is an annual two-day festival for creative and impactful environmental content. It aims to educate the general public on the importance of conserving and taking care of the environment. It also aims to provide a platform to bridge between the public and environmental conservationist professionals.

The festival is entering its fourth year and will be held on the 15th and 16th of September at Nexus Resort & Spa in Karambunai. This time around, they will be putting a spotlight on marine environments, the pervasive impact of plastic waste and the quest for sustainable planet.

The team behind ROR are from Future Alam Borneo, a non-profit organisation from Sandakan. The team has been organising the event in Sandakan since 2014. This will be their first time organising the event outside of Sandakan.

There are five key zones during Rhythms of Rimba; Conservation, Adventure, Creative, Music, and Sustainability. The concept of the whole event is Experiential Education. The organisers believe in sharing the knowledge through practical, immersive and hands-on experiences, which they believe will result in better understanding towards the subject matter and lead to adoption and action.
