Iowa City’s Climate Fest begins its second day and will be focused on sustainable lifestyles.
The title for the second day of the fest is “Taco ‘bout a sustainable lifestyle” and the personal challenge is to eat a plant-based meal. Local restaurants are participating in the climate fest and can be found using this map for taco options. A plant based diet has been shown to positively influence land use which can help to slow climate change.
For Tuesday’s community event, FilmScene will be hosting the movie The Biggest Little Farm online for free. The movie can be watched at any point during the day, but Iowa City’s Climate Action staff will be live tweeting the film starting at 7 pm. The movie will be followed by a discussion beginning at 8:30 and will include panelists from the Climate Action Division, Field to Family, and Film Scene.
