Why:

The Sudbury Earth Day Festival Committee was formed because the group felt there was not enough taking place in the City of Greater Sudbury to raise awareness of current environmental challenges on Earth Day.  Earth Day is one day out of the year where we can commit ourselves to local environmental achievements and initiatives. 

The committee wants to empower and encourage the local community to focus on environmental issues and take action by implementing sustainable values and solutions not only on Earth Day but also on an everyday basis.
