UnFestival Schedule*

*The schedule is a work in progress. Many more events to come…

PAST:

JULY: WASTE

The theme for JULY is WASTE. Why is waste so important to sustainability? Because everything has to go somewhere. Our “waste” is quickly consuming the planet, when so many products could be reduced, repaired, reused or recycled. We used to think we could just throw things away. We now have to realize there is no “away!”

July 1-31: CONTEST
Post your trash artwork to social media

July TBD: EDUCATION (& FUN)
Trash Trivia Night – Win prizes!

AUGUST: FOOD

The theme for AUGUST is FOOD. Why is food so important to sustainability? Food is so directly tied to our health and the health of the planet, which also affects our health. Eating local and reducing food waste are key issues to sustainability.

JUNE: ACTIVISM
(these events are now over)

The theme for JUNE was ACTIVISM. Why is activism so important to sustainability? Because poverty, injustice, the environment, health, war, culture, education, politics… they are all intertwined. We don’t change one part of the system without changing them all. And in June, we’ve heard the call for a new era, and it’s time we respond – in a big way. In every way we possibly can.
