Opportunity Details

Earth Day: Social Impact Jam

Take part in a fun, intentional Earth Day event designed to improve Portand public spaces while making friends, nourishing your body, and dancing to live music!

WHAT IS SOCIAL IMPACT JAM?

Social: In times like these, it is important for people to relate to and interact with one another and with their community in ways that are healthy and fun.
Impact: It is increasingly important for our actions to affect one another and the spaces we inhabit in positive ways.
Jam: When music, dance, food, and performance are a part of our interactions, creative expression is encouraged, moods are elevated, relationships are strengthened, and community bonds are formed.

Social Impact Jam is an event series that brings together volunteers who work to improve Portland's beautiful public spaces. Participants get to know one another within small groups of about 5. Live music is available to listen to using "silent disco" headphones and live painting documents the impact of volunteers on the space and each other. Groups take a rest at the nourishment station stocked with healthy snacks and beverages. The event culminates in a dance party to celebrate within the space participants just improved!

COVID protocols: The events are held outside to reduce risk, and follow CDC guidelines regarding infection prevention.

Partnerships: Eco-munity is partnering with SOLVE and Portland Parks and Recreation, and is supported by Precipitation NorthWest and Burners Without Borders.
