POSTPONED – Party for the Planet

 

Good Music. Real Science. Big Fun.

Facing the complexities of climate change alone can be daunting. That’s why you’re invited to join FortWhyte Alive and the Prairie Climate Centre for a night out to celebrate the planet and get inspired by the good work happening in our community.

__

Dive deep into the stories behind the science with a curated selection of exhibits, videos, and demonstrations for fun, interactive learning.

Get inspired by examples of local climate action being taken today to work toward our shared sustainable future.

Come together in community to spend time outside and reconnect with the planet – the reason we’re all here.


We believe that exploring, learning and connecting with nature is how we can create change in the world. Outdoor fun, music and beverages will keep the positive energy flowing all evening.
