‎Sailgating! A Sustainable Floating Party w/Sustainable Seattle

September 1, 2020 @ 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm

Sailgating = tailgating, but socially distant on the water. We made it up. Social distance has made us delirious?! Or geniuses??

Join Sustainable Seattle as we host a dinner party-on-the-water in South Lake Union.

Seattle area boaters and environmentalists, gather in your sailboats, kayaks, paddleboards, and other means of water-based transportation for speakers, picnic dinner and toast, and celebrating our beautiful and essential waterscapes during this turbulent time.

Our expert guests will discuss watershed health, the Just Transition framework, and Dame Ellen MacArthur, a famous yachtswoman whose time living on her boat inspired her to dedicate her life to zero waste and the Circular Economy.
