As the world grapples with issues of climate change, pollution, and other environmental challenges, the need for sustainability has never been more important.
One way of promoting sustainability is by bringing people together to celebrate the earth and learn ways to protect it. In celebration of Earth Day, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to organize the second annual Festival of Sustainability, from April 20th to April 27th.
The festival is entirely online, full of great topics and fun conversation. You can revisit our first Festival by having a look here: Festival of Sustainability 2022.
The goal is to raise awareness of sustainable practices and offer practical solutions that anyone can adopt in their daily lives. We do need your help, though, so we would like to invite you to get involved.
Here are two ways:
1. Community Photo Collage:
Share a photo of yourself somewhere “green.” It could be at a park, a forest, a beach cleanup, a botanical garden or even your backyard. We will stitch all the images together to make our very own community collage that we will share as a featured post at the end of the festival. Your photo could inspire others to take action, reduce their carbon footprint, and live more sustainably. So, dust off your camera, grab your phone, and snap a photo of yourself in a green space.
How this works:
- Take a selfie of yourself somewhere “green”
- Landscape or portrait
- Clear, quality photos using your smartphone (or other device if you prefer)
- Ideal image formats: JPEG or PNG
- Send your submissions to email@example.com to be included in the grand reveal at the end of the festival or post it below.
2. Create a detailed topic all sustainability:
If you would like to create a topic to be included in the week, please comment below or contact me directly to discuss this further. Some topics to consider are renewable energy sources, recycling, green products – we have other topics we can suggest as well so feel free to reach out if you’d like some ideas!
We are asking for a maximum of 750 words (if you can!), which we will translate into all the languages we support here on the CC to share during the Festival.
Together, we can make a positive impact on our planet. Let's do this! Let’s all share and inspire each other during the Festival of Sustainability!
Thanks so much,
