THE SUSTAINABLE LIVING EXPO
PALISADES HIGH SCHOOL
SATURDAY APRIL 23RD - 10AM - 4PM
 
Peace-Youth is excited to announce that we will be hosting our first SUSTAINABLE LIVING EXPO in collaboration with LEPOCO
(Lehigh Pocono Committee of Concern) and Durham Township CCAP.
 
The event is FREE and will be held from 10am to 4pm Saturday, April 23rd, in the main entranceway, lobby and auditorium of the Palisades High School, 35 Church Hill Road, Kintnersville, PA 18930.
 

The expo will showcase seven expert speakers and 30+ vendors and educational tables to help you learn how to live more sustainably, whether you want to reduce your dependence on fossil fuels by 20%, 50% or go "net -zero", or even "off-the-grid". There will be information for you on ways to do it, no matter what your budget. It's also a great place for young people to learn about all the exciting career opportunities in this fast evolving energy revolution!

 

Bring the whole family!

 

We are honored to have Dr. James Hansen, former NASA Climate Scientist, attending our event. At 11:30 am, he and Jerry Fritz of Linden Hill Gardens will dedicate a tree to the school in honor of Earth Day. Dr. Hansen’s work has been in the news for the past few months in his role as plaintiff along with 21 youth in Our Children’s Trust landmark lawsuit against the Federal Government.
