The Community Environmental Council (CEC) is hosting #CelebrateClimateLeadership, a virtual Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival dedicated to inspiration, community building and climate action. The free livestream event begins on Thursday, April 22 and runs until Saturday, April 24 starting at noon each day. It will be available to view at

The virtual Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival – which will be fully online again this year due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions – will feature three days of conversations with climate leaders, musical performances, art contests, inspirational speakers and opportunities for individuals to learn how they can lean into action at this urgent moment. Each day will celebrate a key area where climate leaders are stepping up to do the critical work needed to combat the climate crisis: April 22 focuses on youth leadership; April 23 on business leadership; and April 24 on community leadership.

CEC will also use the three-day event to outline and dive deeper into the organization’s goal to develop a plan for how the community can meet the urgency of the climate crisis and “go all in together on halting the impacts of climate change rapidly and equitably.”
