Innovators are powering incredible changes across the globe, helping all of us to re-imagine and re-think how we live and the everyday objects we use in an effort to curb our consumer driven “throw-away” habits and ensure a healthy tomorrow for everyone and our planet. Things like: weatherizing your home for the best energy conservation, tree pruning and native lanscaping; composting, emission-free transportation; backyard beekeeping, innovative alternative energy options; and urban tree projects. This year the Festival is excited to offer a full day of innovative projects and ideas presented by inspiring speakers. A full schedule of topics and presentors will be available in early April.
The Whole Earth Innovation Tent will be located on the east side of the Scuplture Park north of the Council Chambers
Here are a few of the presenters featured at the Innovator Tent:
