Join CET and the Berkshire Environmental Action Team (BEAT) for the Annual Berkshire Earth Expo, a fun community fair focused on energy efficiency, climate resilience, and the protection of nature and our health. This is the fourth year the Berkshire Earth Expo has been organized by Living the Change Berkshires, and every year it is bigger and better! This year the event will feature the “Cooler Communities Challenge,” an invitation to the general public to take real concrete steps to reduce our community’s carbon footprint.
This fun day gives attendees the opportunity to learn about practical actions they can take right now to live more sustainably, reduce energy use, and save money. The event will include student exhibits, eco-friendly vendors and organizations, great food, arts and crafts, games, and much more. CET will have information on hand about our programs and services for you to consider, including Solar Access, Mass Save, and THE GREEN TEAM for teachers, to name a few–not to mention a free Green Raffle basket!
Exhibits on climate change and other environmental issues by students from several schools, both public and private, will be matched with vendors and not-for-profit organizations that will offer easy, practical actions for the public to take. These student exhibits are sure to inspire all of the attendees.
The overall impact of these actions will be tallied, and the reductions of CO2 as a result will be calculated throughout the day and publicized afterward. These actions will not only be good for the earth and future generations, but can also save money and increase comfort in your home.
This event is free and open to the public.
