The City will be hosting a new event: the IC Climate Expo at Big Grove Brewery.
The Expo will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019, at Big Grove Brewery Iowa City, 1225 S. Gilbert St. This event will update the community on local initiatives and showcase findings following the City's 100-Day Study of its new emissions goals, and the accelerated community-based actions need to make them achievable.
The City adopted higher emissions goals after the City declared a Climate Crisis in August. The new carbon emissions goals are a 45% reduction of 2010 levels by 2030, and net zero by 2050.
The event will also feature local leaders and representatives from various local non-profits and businesses, giving talks on how they are working to combat climate change. Along with complimentary food, there will be information tables on sustainability-related projects and programs throughout the City, trivia games, raffles, and more.
The event starts at 5:30 p.m., followed by a 30-minute social hour where audiences can mingle with event speakers and enjoy complimentary Big Grove food, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. Presentations will then begin at 6 p.m. The event should conclude around 7:30 p.m.
You can RSVP for the event online through our Facebook Event, but no RSVP is needed.
