2019 AGENDA

Night Market and Kick-Off: April 24 

  • To kick-off the festivities, join us at Riverview’s Community Hall for the only mid-week market in the area! Put on by the LadyBoss Collective, the Chocolate River Farmers’ pop-up market brings local artisans and agriculturists to your fingertips. With live music and local finds, there’s no better way to get in the sustaina-spirit. 

Sustaina-Symposium: April 25 

  • Inspired by the theme of renewable energy, this year’s symposium will focus on residential, commercial and communal projects, practices and organizations that are shaping the future of tomorrow. Hear from an impressive lineup of speakers known for leading the way in our province and beyond, and don’t miss our unique Off-Grid'r panel with real-life storytellers that have left the urban metropolis behind. The event will be followed by an opportunity to engage in further dialogue with the many thought-leaders and change-makers in attendance over a private networking reception. 

Youth Day: April 26 

  • Did you know that Riverview High School offers an entrepreneurship program for its students? As part of Sustaina-Palooza, Riverview High School has pulled together a day of speakers, an idea market and motivational REDtalks to further ignite the entrepreneurial spirit in today's youth. Students will pitch their community projects to a panel of judges the following day in hopes of receiving a Sustainability Micro-Grant.

Pitches, Presentations and Mini-Tradeshow: April 27 

  • Get inspired by a series of pitches from students and residents on game-changing community projects! Each pitch will be in the running to receive a Sustainability Micro-Grant of up to $2,500. Dive into various interactive demos from how to harvest rain water to compost and vermiculture, and a presentation from Fundy Solar and a mini-tradeshow will invigorate anyone to take action.
