For this edition of our sustainable events roundup, we’re taking a little break from our own backyard and scoping out the sustainability scene on the west coast. If you live in LA, or are heading there for a break from the dreary east coast winter, check out one of these environmentally-focused events coming up in the next couple months.
Sunrise Movement Super Tuesday Circus
Sunrise Movement, the youth-led coalition organizing for radical action on climate change, is hosting a Super Tuesday circus. The event has no entry fee, but you need an ‘I voted’ sticker to get in. There will be standup comedy, DJ sets, and other circus-inspired entertainment. The event runs from 7:30 to 10:30 at The Virgil on March 3rd, and you can register here.
Lecture: The Human Right to Water in LA
This talk at UCLA’s Luskin School of Public Affairs will get you up to speed on LA’s complex water dynamics, from the latest technological innovations to the politics to the inequities riddling the system. Speakers include the director of the UCLA Water Resources Group, Urban Planning professors, and government representatives. The event is free and open to the public, and you can register here.
Green Dreams Art Walk
On March 7th, Mar Vista and the Disability Community Resource Center will be hitting the streets of Venice to celebrate art, music, and sustainability. The Music and Art walk will center local musicians, restaurateurs, small business owners, and community leaders. It starts on the corner of Venice Boulevard and Inglewood Boulevard and stretches to Lyceum Avenue. Head over anytime in the afternoon, from 4-10 PM.
People, Planet, Plate
On March 25th, Santa Monica’s Historic Woman’s Club is hosting a celebration of the city’s sustainable food infrastructure, from local farms to eco-conscious restaurants. The evening will include cooking demonstrations, free food from local establishments, and interactive panels about how to make food choices in your daily life that decrease harm to the planet and improve your health. The event is free but you can register here.
Sustainable Living Fair
The North Orange and Southeast LA county chapters of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby are throwing a daylong sustainable living fair on March 28th. The all-day event promises to be full of hot tips on how to reduce your impact on the environment every day, from composting how-tos to panel discussions on plastics and vegan cooking demonstrations. Solar panel vendors will be on site for anyone considering adding solar energy to their home, and there will also be live music and activities for kids. The event is free, but you can register here.
