Earth Fest

Event Overview

In celebration of Earth Day, the Climate Action Mobilizers partnered with CALP to celebrate the individual and community commitments made by past Cool ‘Hood Champs at the Everett-Crowley Park Committee’s Earth Fest event. 

Earth Fest is an annual community event organized by local residents and supported by the Champlain Heights Community Association’s Everett Crowley Park Committee and the Vancouver Parks Board. Together, we joined with over 100 Earth Fest attendees to celebrate Earth Day through various activities, including the planting of native trees and shrubs provided by the Vancouver Park Board, UBC CALP and the UBC Climate Action Mobilizers.

This event was an opportunity to connect past and present Cool ‘Hood Champs and to celebrate both individual and community commitments made in the past 3 years. Celebrating Earth Fest with the Champlain Heights neighbourhood also offered an opportunity to support and further engage with community-based initiatives in Metro Vancouver. 



“Cool Hood Champs gave me lots of tools for me as an individual and for organizing my neighbourhood to take climate action. With climate being such a huge and divisive issue, these tools are so timely and critical.”


“The direness of our climate emergency can make us feel at times helpless and ineffective. Cool ‘Hoods offers a chance to meet with others in your own neighbourhood, find out what resources are available to you and gain confidence that even small accessible changes can make a difference.”
