Earth Week in Whistler

Earth Week in Whistler | April 17-22
Earth Week is a global initiative that promotes environmental awareness and inspires action to protect and preserve the planet for future generations. In Whistler, The Association of Whistler Area Residents for the Environment (AWARE), has rallied community partners to come together and celebrate the week over a series of events. Here’s how Whistler visitors and residents can join AWARE in coming together to celebrate Earth Week in Whistler:

April 17: Yoga for the Planet
Connect to the earth through movement and mindfulness with a gentle Hatha yoga class at the Audain Art Museum to set your intentions for Earth Week.

April 18: Re-Love-It Clothing Swap
Reject fast fashion and swap clothes, shoes and accessories you no longer need or wear. Fill a bag of your previously loved clothes and meet us at the Westin Resort & Spa to exchange them for a wardrobe refresh!

April 19: Value of Old Growth and Biodiversity Talk
Hosted by the Cheakamus Community Forest, learn how old-growth ecosystems link to biodiversity, and the wellbeing of people and the planet at a talk with Dr. Andy MacKinnon, renowned forest ecologist, educator, and co-author of Plants of Coastal British Columbia.

April 20: Pitch-In-Day + BBQ
Volunteer with Whistler community groups and roll up your sleeves to clear litter in neighbourhoods from Emerald to Function. Fuel up at a post-event community BBQ hosted by the Resort Municipality of Whistler.

April 21: Repair Café + Reimagine Your Wardrobe
Don’t toss it, repair or reimagine it with workshops and services to upcycle and repair clothing and household items. Bring your items to the Whistler Public Library and retail partners to fix and upcycle your pre-loved gear. Reduce waste and support a circular economy.

April 22: Party for the Planet + Silent Auction
Party for the Planet: Après Style at Dusty’s in Creekside thanks to Whistler Blackcomb and supported by Vail Resorts EpicPromise. Dance, enjoy drinks, snacks and great prizes! Bid on gear, goods, and experiences in a silent auction to support AWARE.
