Sustainable Living Roadshow
The Sustainable Living Roadshow (SLR) is a caravan of educators and entertainers who tour the country in a fleet of renewable fuel vehicles to empower communities and individuals to utilize sustainable living strategies for a healthier planet. They will be visiting K-12 schools, university campuses and community festivals across the United States, where the caravan sets up off-the-grid eco-carnivals with experiential learning villages, featuring workshops, speakers and entertainment.
The SLR will be launching their 11-week Fall 2008 "Be the Change" Tour at the Democratic and Republican National Convention, and continuing onto 8 college campuses. Their goal is to provide a platform for local businesses, organizations and community leaders to come together in a festival atmosphere to present a local and national atmosphere for sustainability. During this time of political tension, global climate change and economic instability, "Be the Change" is working towards presenting this type of information as an omni-partisan agenda - they want to make sure that the issues that really matter to our communities and planet do not get lost in the political campaign this year. SLR will bring off-the-grid infrastructure to create an eco-carnival atmosphere.
