CEC’s 2021 Virtual Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival
April 22 - April 24
Three days dedicated to getting inspired, building community, and leaning into climate action at this urgent moment.
The Community Environmental Council (CEC) is hosting #CelebrateClimateLeadership, a virtual Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival dedicated to inspiration, community building, and climate action. The FREE livestream event begins on Thursday, April 22 and runs until Saturday, April 24. It will be available to view at SBEarthDay.org.
The virtual Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival – which will be fully online again this year due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions – will feature three days of conversations with climate leaders, musical performances, art contests, inspirational speakers, and opportunities for individuals to learn how they can lean into action at this urgent moment.
Each day will celebrate a key area where climate leaders are stepping up to do the critical work needed to combat the climate crisis:
- April 22: Youth Leadership
- April 23: Business Leadership
- April 24: Community Leadership
CEC will also use the three-day event to outline and dive deeper into the organization’s ambitious plan for how our community can meet the urgency of the climate crisis and go all in together on halting the impacts of climate change – rapidly and equitably – through three major efforts:
- Reverse: Push for ambitious, equitable zero emissions and zero waste goals for the energy, transportation, food, and agriculture sectors
- Repair: Tap into the power of nature to draw down excess carbon from the atmosphere and repair the disrupted carbon cycle
- Protect: Safeguard the health of our general public and vulnerable populations from the impacts of climate change already underway
