Step Into Sustainability logo

Step into Sustainability is a student-run sustainable festival that will be a kickoff event for the This Way to Sustainability Conference.  Step into Sustainability is focused on celebrating and spreading awareness about applying sustainable practices to your everyday life. The core values of this festival are all about being sustainable and reducing waste, which is why Step into Sustainability is taking extra steps to make sure that the festival in itself is as sustainable as possible. Throughout the day, there will be live music performances varying from rock to rap, various dance performances, hands-on games and activities, prizes, and much more!
You'll also be able to pre-register for the conference at this event.

The International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA) is the premiere association supporting and enabling festival and event professionals worldwide. In 2014, California State University, Chico became the first school in the world to establish an IFEA Student Chapter. Together, our goal is to build the largest network of future professionals interested in the event management industry by connecting students with the leading industry professionals and events around the world.
