Community Engagement

Here’s what we’re doing to engage our community, plus how you can participate!

Back to Mission: Home

Amping up the Eco Village

The all-new Eco Village is a can’t miss this year! With the Oasis stage at its center, it boasts all new shade structures, places to lounge, live art and immersive education experiences from our community partners. Engage and connect with Debris Free Oceans, Clean Miami Beach, Bye Bye Plastic, Love the Everglades Movement, Miami-Dade County Parks Sea Turtle Conservation Program, Protect Animals Worldwide and Baptist Health South Florida to learn about protecting the environment and other important causes.

Giving you opportunities to volunteer

Our volunteer program makes this program possible. Be a Mission: Home hero by signing up with Clean Vibes!.

Educating partners, vendors and staff

Our community of partners, vendors and staff will be made aware of all of our sustainability initiatives and how they can participate before moving into Bayfront Park. Together, we will bring Mission: Home to life!

Posting sustainability signage

Throughout our event, you’ll see physical and digital signage reminding you to Leave No Trace, “Connect to Nature”, protect Biscayne Bay and participate in other sustainability initiatives.

Collecting and sharing detailed reports

All sustainability initiatives will be audited and a final report will be compiled to track key learnings and successes. Auditing these initiatives not only ensures compliance, but also builds a foundation for growth in future events.

Giving one paid intern and student volunteers real world industry experience

Students interested in learning about sustainable event production will assist with sustainability initiative implementation and auditing. Check out the positive impact these students helped create last year, here!

Creating this very web page and social media posts

Advanced messaging of our Mission: Home program is intended to educate our community and encourage sustainable behavior among attendees and our worldwide audience. It also shows what’s possible for the event industry as a whole!

Participating in speaking engagements and education

Our sustainability team often speaks on this program and its implementation at events in order to share insights and inspire our industry to operate more sustainably. Email: [email protected] for more information.

Many of our Pollution Prevention & Nature Preservation initiatives engage our community too!
