Pitch Summary:

In fall of 2018, ECHO will install “ Energy Commons ”, an outdoor, free public space that invites the Waterfront’s nearly 1 million annual visitors to explore environmental sustainability through interactive exhibits and social connections. It will be composed of synergistic elements: a science park with interactive exhibits; green infrastructure demonstrations, including renewable energy technologies and alternative transportation linkages; interpretive panels; social spaces, including a cafe and performance space; and art installations by local artists. This $1 million project, a partnership between ECHO and the City of Burlington, will serve as a platform for utilities, energy companies, NGO’s and government agencies to engage the public in achieving our energy goals.
