CU Boulder is known to many Boulder residents as the stomping ground of irresponsible, rude, and ruckus-making kids. On Earth Day 2016, we demonstrated that a different narrative is possible. Some said that it couldn’t be done, that there were too many moving pieces and that it would be difficult to engage the right people. We proved them wrong.
EarthFest was an ecosocial music festival held on the terrace of the University Memorial Center. With support from the CU Environmental Center, the Cultural Events Board, and the City of Boulder, Solutions Voyage worked with the CU Biomimicry Club to bring 7 musical acts, over 20 community organizations, collaborative murals, a permaculture-inspired panel on relationship building, a student skit on menstruation, a poetry workshop and more to the CU campus.
