From October 8 through 22, The Fifth Annual Vancouver Sustenance Festival will examine words such as “sustainability” and “living green” through a series of interactive dialogues and presentations that shed light on how we can contribute to a better living experience within our communities. Vancouver’s Sustenance Festival will spread across the city this year in order to educate all neighbourhoods about the importance of green living both locally and globally.
