This year marks the 10th anniversary of the event, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Columbia College student commons building.
The event is free to the public and will offer an information fair, three solar tours and eight workshops on topics that range from composting basics to ways for college students to live sustainably, Mid-Missouri Peaceworks director Mark Haim said.
Dan Chiras will deliver this year's keynote speech at 1:45 p.m. Sunday. Chiras is the director of the Evergreen Institute, a Missouri-based training center that provides workshops on renewable energy and green building. He has also authored a number of books and articles on environmental science.
“He's a dynamic speaker," Haim said. "He is widely known as one of the leading experts in the country on green energy and green building."
Haim said the benefits of sustainable living are priceless.
"We do better by being creative, being inventive, being resourceful," Haim said. "We create a higher quality of life, rather than a higher quantity of consumption."
Supervising editor is John Schneller.
