Volunteer Opportunities at Earth Celebrations


Volunteer Opportunities at Earth Celebrations

Earth Celebrations is a non-profit organization dedicated to generating ecological and social change through the arts. Since 1991, Earth Celebrations programs have mobilized communities to address climate change, waste management, water quality, river restoration, and the preservation of community gardens, parks, and a healthy urban environment in New York City.

They are currently seeking volunteers to participate in the Ecological City Pageant, a cultural climate action project engaging youth and community to develop and bring together climate resiliency and ecological sustainability solutions, within the gardens, neighborhood and waterfront on the Lower East Side of New York City.

They are seeking bi-weekly volunteers for workshops working with the community to create spectacular visual art, giant puppets, and costumes for the procession celebrating climate solutions.
