The festival will feature informative talks and discussions by climate leaders, creative and fun workshops that spark curiosity and inspire belonging as it relates to our shared urban environment, climate-themed dance and theatrical performances, and much more. In addition, multiple organizations representing activism, the energy sector and climate education and communications will be stationed in Nolan Park throughout the day.
