Building off the success of last year’s Community Energy Fair, the Office of Sustainability is once again partnering with the Rhode Island Sierra Club, People’s Power & Light, and others to host this year’s SustainPVD Fair.
Events will include the Compost Workshop, Rain Barrel Workshop, information on how to reduce waste and make your home more energy efficient, and how to go solar. There will also be a special workshop hosted by the Racial and Environmental Justice Committee to learn about Energy Democracy and the City’s goal to become carbon neutral by 2050. This community event will be family friendly and include free food and music.
We are looking for vendors to complete the event with interactive exhibits. Attendees will be guided through the event with volunteers and a worksheet to help them take in all the information and encourage them to engage with vendors. Apply via this form by April 30th. Space is limited and preference will be given to those who demonstrate creative and active displays, as well as those who can provide information in Spanish. The goal of the event is for participants to walk away with resources and information to help them take action in their home, at work, and throughout their community to help make Providence greener and healthier.
Please email any questions to SustainPVD@ProvidenceRI.gov.
