Tomorrow at noon, celebrate a day of worldwide climate action with the Alliance for Affordable Energy, the Tulane Green Club and Repower Louisiana. The groups lead a demonstration for climate change awareness and legislation, part of the global movement lead by 350.org. Meet on Tulane grounds across from Audubon Park on St. Charles Avenue. On Sunday, from noon to 2:30 p.m., the alliance, the Gulf Restoration Network, 1Sky and Louisiana Bucket Brigade, among others, along with 350 musicians, hold a rally at Congo Square in Louis Armstrong Park, followed by a second line to d.b.a. (in time for the Saints vs. Dolphins).
Also in football and rallying event news, if you're checking out the LSU game this Saturday, stop by the carbon-neutral tailgaiting party hosted by ECO LSU and Repower Louisiana from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m in the parking lot of Campus Federal Bank near the Coastal Sciences Building. The event is solar-powered and recycling- and vegetarian-friendly.
And another event tomorrow: From 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., check out Global Green's green job career fair at Walter Cohen High School (2523 Dryades St.). More than 40 green professionals will be present, covering everything from environmental law to solar installation services. Meet employers from Sierra Club, Future Proof Architecture, ResCom Energy Savers and Green Coast Enterprises construction.
One more for tomorrow: In next week's Green Matters, I talked to Kerry Fitts with Bayou Salvage to learn about DIY Halloween costumes. You can learn more at the Green Project tomorrow from 10 a.m. to noon, where Fitts teaches a workshop to make your own Halloween gear.
