Sustainapalooza is an annual event for young people engaged in efforts to facilitate enhanced urban resiliency and sustainability. Our theme is sustainable consumption; our goal is to engage and organize community members and students to discuss and address the issue of sustainable consumption. In addition to a panel discussion, breakout sessions, and a keynote address, students will present projects in need of funding focused on transitions to more sustainable, just, and resilient cities. We will close the day with a group discussion, and participants will have the opportunity to vote on which projects receive seed funding.
