The Environmental Council of Sacramento (ECOS) will once again host Sacramento Earth Day! Held in Southside Park on Sunday, April 23, 2017, from 11:00am – 4:00pm, this year the theme is Environmental and Climate Literacy. Around 150 organizations and businesses will be exhibiting a vast array of practical information, goods and services that cultivate a healthier and more sustainable way of living. Attend Sacramento Earth Day to enjoy live music, local artists, delicious plant-based cuisine, educational opportunities for the whole family.

Earth Day 2017: Environmental & Climate Literacy

This year ECOS has chosen to align the theme for Sacramento Earth Day with that of the national Earth Day Network, in light of the fact that we as a country face new environmental challenges, and need to unite to fight them

Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.

Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies, but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.


Thank you to our sponsors
