For the past five years, the Berkshire Earth Expo, organized by Living the Change Berkshires, has been a meeting place to learn about climate, energy and conservation related topics, to celebrate nature’s beauty and to take action to protect the earth.

This year, because of COVID-19, Living the Change Berkshires will collaborate for the first time with Berkshire Museum to hold the fifth annual Berkshire Earth Expo online.

From Nov. 1 to 14, the Berkshire Museum will host a wide variety of exhibits and interactive programs on its website, such as podcasts about Berkshire students' work to protect nature, poetry readings, workshops and webinars on climate solutions, and a juried art show called "How Shall We Live?" Climate Visions of Berkshire Youth Artists.

The Cooler Communities Action Platform, a key feature of the expo, will give visitors an opportunity to pledge to make small changes at home.
