With a number of events appealing to families, business leaders and sustainability experts, host Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives extended the festival from one week to two. Events explored how we can individually and collectively spark imagination, ignite change and illuminate sustainable solutions in our communities. 2016 also marked the first time the festival partnered with ASU's Night of the Open Door, shining a spotlight on sustainability programs and practices across the university through interactive games and a Passport to Sustainability.
