Earth Day Savannah serves as an important opportunity for local government, businesses, non-profits, and community groups to connect with the public and each other. It is the City of Savannah’s largest environmental outreach event of the year and the largest educational Earth Day event in the state of Georgia.
A wide variety of exhibitors and workshops take place with something for everyone. The exhibits range from state and federal government programs, local government initiatives, national conservation organizations, environmental education centers, local sustainability non-profits, academic institutions, energy companies, industries, lobbying groups, public utilities, holistic health practices, youth groups, religious institutions, local businesses and green contractors.
By providing a venue for community organizations, groups and businesses to get their names out, educate the public about their efforts, network with each other and recruit new members or clients; The Savannah Earth Day Festival has not only strengthened the environmental network in Savannah, but has generated new activists and organizations by introducing many attendees to these issues for the first time.
Savannah is a diverse city, in demographics, values, and interests. The Savannah Earth Day Festival serves to unite the many different interests that would otherwise be celebrating the day separately. By hosting a central Earth Day festival we are not only working to unite Savannah’s environmental interests, but also to unite it’s politically and socially divided communities. These communities join in a common cause to sustain the precious natural resources of our coastal Georgia.
