Millennium Fellowship Project: Sustainable Events Initiative
The Sustainable Events Initiative strives to help parks and other public spaces put on more socially and environmentally sustainable events and festivals. This project aims to reduce the carbon footprint of large events and increase environmental education and awareness for attendees. I hope to continue to develop collaborative partnerships with local parks and their surrounding communities to organize more sustainable and inclusive events in the future.
