» More information

A global distributed festival based on the principles of education, entertainment, fundraising and action! This exciting event's focus will be to address the issues of pipelines, tankers and tar sands expansion while leaving a sense of hope by exploring alternative energies and methods of change. We recognize that it is important to discuss the severity of an issue but we also feel it is important to focus on positive alternatives instead of getting stuck in a feeling of doom and gloom. Spotlight Earth will raise awareness for these issues by bringing in guest speakers on the forefront of change making; however, most importantly, we will be drawing from the Capilano University community to raise awareness in a creative and artistic way!
