Come Celebrate!

Join us for an evening of music, art, inspiration, and fun! Following the Evolve Sustainability Summit, we are going to gather together in beautiful Rackham Auditorium to celebrate our community, and our planet. In thinking about sustainability, it is important to remember that we have to enjoy the stuff that makes life worth living, like music, friends, and community! Our Celebration is free and open to the public, so come out, and bring some friends!

The giving tree band

The Giving Tree Band brings spirit, energy, and positivity to crowds across the nation with their unique music. We're lucky enough to have them at our very own Rackham Auditorium, so come on out and see why people are saying that they have "the spirit of Pete Seeger with the musical abilities of The Band."  They're also known for extraordinary environmental stewardship and eco-friendly music production. They use a number of instruments that were handmade from naturally fallen trees and reclaimed woods, and have made sustainability a top priority as they travel around the nation. Come listen to one of the most sustainability focused bands in the nation. Not only are they eco-warriors but they rock!

Come to listen to the Mayor of Ann Arbor, Christopher Taylor, speak about the future of sustainability in our city. Small towns and cities like ours are on the front lines of addressing climate change and implementing sustainability. We are lucky to have Mayor Taylor join us, and we are so excited to hear what is in store for the future of Ann Arbor!
