Iron Range Partnership for Sustainability: Earth Fest 2022 Energizing Our Future – Mountain Iron, MN

Apr 17, 2022 | events/locations

What is Earth Fest?

Earth Fest is an annual event initiated by the Iron Range Partnership for Sustainability. It is the largest sustainability fair on the Range, attracting over a thousand participants. Earth Fest connects people from all over the Range around topics that foster a future that our children can be proud of. What do we need to do in order to leave the Iron Range in better shape than we found it? How can we meet our needs without compromising our grandchildren’s ability to meet theirs? That’s the question we address at Earth Fest. We invite you to join the larger conversation.

Where is Earth Fest?

The Iron Range Earth Fest takes place on the Highway 169 Corridor in Mountain Iron, Minnesota. Presentations, exhibitors & vendors and activities are spread throughout three different buildings on Enterprise Drive and Emerald Ave (located just off of Hwy. 169).

In joining and building partnerships, we are dedicated to maintaining and improving our region through our mission statement and organizational values.
Promote Sustainability:
Sustainability means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. IRPS focuses its work on the interrelationship of three primary elements of sustainability: community, economy, and the environment.
Bringing People Together:
Communities thrive when people come together around the common good. IRPS encourages inclusive collaboration, listening, dialogue and positive action.
Raise Awareness:
Awareness of the social, economic, and environmental aspects of sustainability is a catalyst for change. IRPS raises community awareness through communication, education, and resource networking.
Focus Locally:
The evolving cultural, racial, and ethnic diversity of the Iron Range is a source of sustainability. IRPS welcomes diversity, celebrates traditions, and encourages local innovation for equitable, thriving communities.
Engage Multiple Generations:
Every generation has a stake in sustainability, with knowledge, experience, and skills to share. IRPS encourages learning and partnering across multiple generations.
Foster Personal and Planetary Health:
Communities thrive when they recognize the relationships between personal and planetary health. IRPS collaborates in local initiatives that foster health holistically and support environmental justice.
