Over the course of seven days, the city of Iowa City will be sharing some simple tricks on how to save the world.

“My understanding is the idea originated with former Mayor Throgmorton,” said Sarah Gardner, a climate action engagement specialist with the city of Iowa City. “The climate action commission was very excited about the idea; it was included with the climate action plan.”

Iowa City’s first Climate Fest is scheduled to begin Saturday and run through the following Saturday, Sept. 26. Each day offers a different activity for Iowa City-area individuals to participate in the interest of cleaner living.
