2050kids Earth Day Fundraiser
Sat, April 22, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM PDT
Coming Together to Confront Climate Change.
In recognition of Earth Day, 2050kids is holding a fundraiser to celebrate community efforts to combat climate change and to expand our inaugural program, The Cookstove Challenge, empowering youth as the climate activists of tomorrow.
The Cookstove Challenge
Our hands-on project involves participants in constructing and using the Climate Rescue Can Cookstove, The stove, made out of recycled tin cans, burns biomass to make biochar, a charcoal that sequesters carbon and improves soils. The fundraiser will allow 2050kids to expand the Cookstove Challenge in partnerships with Bay Area schools and nonprofits, providing youth with the opportunity to work against climate change and increase food security one cookstove at a time.
About the Event
Come enjoy an interactive performance with talented local artist, Kristi Williamson and organic refreshments from local businesses improving the planet through their products. What’s more, see the Climate Rescue Can Cookstove in action and hear about the experience of building this biochar-producing cookstove from students at the New Village School who have built 12 stoves.
