Leadership In Sustainability Fair

This year, we're expanding last year's very successful Seeds of Change Contest to include a larger number of organizations. And, we're morphing the concept to be a showcase ... an expo ... of local organizations that are doing cool things in Sustainabilty. We're calling this segment of the Gala the "Leadership in Sustainability Fair".

The Gala draws a diverse audience of business and civic leaders, educators, activists, practitioners, and people who care about Sustainability. It's an excellent audience for sharing all the great things that you're doing! We provide the table (no charge), you provide a tabletop display and at least one volunteer to interact with Gala attendees (we will comp 1 volunteer per organization).

Eligibility Requirements - Individuals and teams, all ages - Non-profit community organizations (need not be 501c3) - Schools, all levels Note: The primary submitter must be a resident of Contra Costa County

Space is limited so please apply or contact us as soon as possible.
