June 12 Program: 
DIY Sustainability

Presented in partnership with
St. Louis Earth Day and St. Louis Green.

Six local presenters will showcase their creative and inspiring DIY projects - sharing ideas for sustainable projects you can do at home to jumpstart your own personal green revolution. Presentations will be delivered Pecha Kucha style.  Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", Pecha Kucha rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
