The Sustainable Events Forum will host a virtual celebration of Canadian event destinations to mark Earth Day on April 22.
Earth Day for Event People will shine a light on 10 of the most sustainable locations, as voted by attendees: St. John’s, Nfld., Halifax, Charlottetown, Montreal, Quebec City, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., Banff, Alta., Vancouver, Victoria and Whitehorse.
Event professionals who host events in these destinations will make the case for their chosen nominee. Attendees will then have the opportunity to choose a champion.
Canadian Business for Social Responsibility executive director Leor Rotchild will co-host the second annual event. Attendees will also hear from the Climate Reality Project on the National Climate League and a new project, Climate Live.
Earth Day for Event People will be held 12-1:30 p.m. EDT. Registration is free via Eventbrite.
