Brilliant idea! I have just made my pledge. I would love to see photos and videos of this in action. It ticks all the right boxes for me as a way of creating an innovative and engaging community-building event. Talk about responsible tourism!
Build a Greener Block (BABG) is a community of Las Vegans looking to take over an empty block in downtown Las Vegas on April 28th and 29th. For this one weekend we’re transforming the block into a living community. Instead of empty stores there will be a restaurant offering healthy food, a boutique, a café, flower shop. We will have a dog park and fitness classes from yoga to an obstacle course for kids. The streets will be lined with food stands and local farmers selling their vegetables. There will be classes for all the family – from gardening and canning to learning how to make your own instrument. And plenty of entertainment – bands street performers, comedians – you name it. And we want to do it all in the most sustainable way possible– we will use solar power, biodegradable utensils. Everything will be recycled and upcycled. Why? Because we want to show that when all of us come together as a community we can change our neighborhoods. We can change our towns. We can change our cities. We want to show that when we join our skills, talents, experiences and resources together we can create the kind of Las Vegas we all want to live in. But we need your help to build a greener block here in Las Vegas. Donate a few dollars and join us April 28 and 29 for all the fun.
