On 10/10/10, in every corner of the globe, people collectively powered together to seek solutions to the current climate crisis. From energy efficient homes to community gardens, solar panels to wind turbines, compostable waste to geothermal energy, 10 /10/10 marked the day when people all across the world began seeking for better ways to keep our future sustainable for generations to come. Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Campus hosted it’s very own 10/10/10 event along with the thousands of other ones that were hosted across the planet this past Sunday. A mountain town like Steamboat naturally has a huge interest in sustainability from the start; and with a College like CMC present in the Steamboat community, there was no better place in the town to hold this wonderful Sustainability Fair.
Beginning Sunday Morning the 10th of October, some clouds rolled in through Steamboat. A bit of rain may have started off the day but it didn’t stop CMC from being a part in this remarkable worldwide event. There were lessons on green technology, people selling all organic foods, and live music right was all going on right in front of Bristol Hall (CMC Alpine’s main building). Hundreds of students showed up throughout 12 – 4 pm and they came to show their respects for mother Earth. 10/10/10 was a one of a kind event to come to Steamboat and no better place than Colorado Mountain College to host it.
