This weekend, the Clean Air Fair will feature live music and dozens of vendors offering solutions to our red-air blues. You can also catch the One World Utah benefit concert featuring former Sudanese child soldier Emmanuel Jal. He’s now a performer and activist for peace and will perform a concert to raise awareness of overseas conflicts and raise money to help local refugee communities in Utah. Later, don’t miss a Salt Lake City Council hearing on reducing wasteful water consumption and protecting trees in city landscaping projects.

Utah Clean Air Fair
Saturday, March 29

This is a fair for average citizens seeking clean air and not just hot air from do-nothing politicians. Besides live music, vendors and guest speakers, there will be groups offering clean-air solutions that fair attendees will have the chance to vote on which one they think is most effective for cleaning out the gunk in the air.

We Want Peace Concert

Salt Lake City Council
Tuesday, April 1

No April foolin’ here—Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker wants to make landscaping in the city more water efficient. That’s why the city council is hosting a hearing regarding a proposal to establish water-efficient landscaping practices by grouping plants with similar water needs together and ensuring the protection of existing trees that are part of new projects.
