Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.
Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.
This Earth Day, gather with your community for an Environmental & Climate Literacy Teach-In or another project focused on education. We are launching Earth Day and Teach-In toolkits that will lay out the steps for holding a successful event. Register your event with us and we will support you with promotion and advice.
We spend time speaking about the Green Stage Alliance and our request for the CD 13 Councilman to make sure that after May 2013 there is a contractual obligation for vendors at Echo Park Lake to replace Styrofoam and petroleum base plastic by implementing use of biodegradable greenware and organic plastics.
CHECK www.StageOfTheArts.info for information about the GREEN STAGE ALLIANCE, where arts and humanities meet with our environment.
UPDATE: Accomplished 2014. The vendor at the boat house is fully green biodegradable. AND MAY 20, 2014 our 20 years old Cuban Music Festival became the first Zero Waste large event at Echo park.
