Speakers, workshops, and interactive activities are included throughout Santa Monica’s very first ClimateFest; a complimentary event held next week at St. Monica’s Campus.
Co-produced by the City in collaboration with Climate Action Santa Monica (CASM), the event– which will happen Saturday, May 19 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.– is suggested to influence companies and locals to become “sustainability modification agents,” event organizers stated.
ClimateFest participants are encouraged to bike, walk and use alternative ways to get to ClimateFest. Cost Valet Bike Parking is available.
“Attendees will browse the schedule and style and curate their own individual ClimateFest experience as they are challenged to select from the banquet of possible activities,” organizers stated.
The occasion– whose keynote speaker is Felicia Marcus, who heads California’s Water Boards– also includes a bicycle hub, green organizations, EV Ride and Drives and entirely free raffle and illustrations.
“In addition to the choir, we hope to draw in people from throughout the neighborhood who do not usually go to Climate Summits” she stated.
Santa Monica’s school is located at 1030 Lincoln Boulevard across from Reed Park.
Registration is asked for and required to receive free raffle and meal tickets. For additional information go to www.climatefestsm.eventbrite.com.
ClimateFest strives to flip the frequently typical environment change story of ‘doom and gloom’ to present environment as something to find out about, engage with, commemorate and honor, and feel empowered to affect positively – stated Laura Gillette, a CASM Steering Committee member.
“We wish to make it an easy ‘yes’ for people of all stripes to go to ClimateFest, and to engage and find out how anyone can have a positive effect by changing a couple of everyday practices,” said CASM Co-Chair Cris Gutierrez.
