Go Green! Brooklyn Festival, hosted by local community organization Town Square, returns for its 11th year to McCarren Park this Saturday, June 2. Each year, local organizations, businesses, schools, crafters and artists inform and entertain thousands of visitors about climate change, sustainability, recycling and more.

“I think a lot of people feel like I do, which is to get involved and be a part of the solution with regards to climate change but don’t know how to begin,” said  Christine E. Binns, director of Town Square, on the event’s website. “And this is the place to come to learn.”

Go Green! Brooklyn is dedicated to informing Brooklynites about what is already going on with regards to sustainable living in the borough, and how they can get involved. The free day-long event features green exhibitors, school sustainability challenges, fitness workshops, dance performances, eco-art, educational and scientific displays concerning our environment, a Greencycle Swap for used but well-maintained clothes, volunteer park cleanups and a carefully curated eco-market. And to up the fun factor, there will be also plenty of activities for kids, local food as well as live music, dance performances and a DJ.

“This is a festival that helps people understand what is going on in Brooklyn. Who are the leaders? What has been created? How can we help them?” said Binns. “The only way we’re ever going to make a difference on a global level is if we take responsibility at a local level.”
