Event description


Thrive Community Day

Learn more about the Indianapolis Office of Sustainability and the Thrive Indianapolis Initiative at our first ever Thrive Indianapolis Community Day! Enjoy family friendly games, music and food while engaging and learning about Indy’s many different sustainability related efforts. Join in on the fun at the Indiana State Museum Lawn at White River State Park on August 18, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Our first community day is centered around Indy’s younger generation, and giving them the chance to let their voice be heard when planning for our city’s future. Kids of all ages will be able to learn about local sustainability efforts, take part in a kid friendly survey and gain ideas on how to lead sustainability efforts in their community. Together, we’ll build a more resilient Indianapolis while incorporating all perspectives of our great city.

What is Thrive?

Thrive Indianapolis, the first actionable plan of its kind in our city’s history, brings together City agencies, community partners, and residents to chart a course for an Indianapolis that is equitable, healthier, and prepared for the challenges of the 21st century – and then, together, we will create a more resilient future. Our community’s ability to mitigate and adapt to these challenges is dependent on your voice.
