Berkshire Earth Expo 2020
The 5th annual Berkshire Earth Expo featuring the Cooler Communities Challenge is postponed until October 3rd, 2020 and will be held at Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield.
Instead, we are participating in a (virtual) Earth Day Celebration and Challenge for all ages.
April marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and even though it was important to postpone the Berkshire Earth Expo, we do not need to miss out on celebrating it! Online resources allow us to participate by taking climate-friendly actions even now and not lose the momentum in our work to protect our own health and that of the earth.
Please join the Berkshire Earth Expo team, one of more than 300 teams nationwide in participating in the EcoChallenge that starts on April 1st. If you are looking for an activity to do with your children, this program works for all ages.
The Earth Day Ecochallenge helps to put your Earth Day intentions into action. You can start right now to select actions that work for you and your family and make a commitment to complete those actions throughout April. For every completed action, you earn points and create impact – visible for all participants to see.
Choose from this list of actions in categories such as Wildlife, Human Resilience, Freshwater, Oceans, People, Food, Climate, and Forests.
The Earth Day Ecochallenge kicks off on April 1. It is free to join and everyone is welcome!

What will the actual Earth Expo be about?
The Berkshire Earth Expo is a meeting- and market-place around energy efficiency, climate resilience, and environmental action for the whole community. In collaboration with community partners, it features Berkshire students’ work on climate, energy and conservation related topics along with climate-friendly vendors, service providers, exhibits, speakers, games and art-making for kids, poetry readings, an art show, music and more.
Well over 1,200 people have attended these fairs.
At this years expo, students will present on all aspects of environmental work: from science to social, from artistic to civics, from waste reduction to our relationship to nature. You will have the opportunity to support the young people’s work by pledging your personal action. Together, we can make a difference.
Check back in soon for our schedule of presentations and list of participants!
