North Country Sustainability Day and Green Living Fair

November 20, 2019

The North Country Sustainability Day and Green Living Fair will be held on April 3 and April 4, 2020, at St. Lawrence University.

This educational and expo event aims to inspire and empower everyone to combat the global climate crisis by fostering a culture of sustainability across the North Country and beyond.

 Students, faculty and staff from the Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley and Paul Smiths College will address issues of food and climate and the Green Living fair will feature a sustainability poster session and a community organization/vendor expo with demonstrations, workshops and tours highlighting technology, tools, programs to eat local, reduce bills, conserve energy and be climate-smart.

There will be a keynote speaker Leah Penniman of Soul Fire Farm whose farm combats inequality and provides naturally grown produce to low and medium-income families in New York's capital region.

 Curriculum development grants are available to encourage the integration of the North Country Sustainability Day and Green Living Fair into spring semester courses. Applications are due by December 9.

 This event is free, open to everyone, and there will be free public transportation to and from all local universities.
