INSPIRING CONNECTIONS OUTDOORS FILM FEST
We had a blast on on February 20th and 21st! You can still watch the films through February 27th and 28th. More details can be found here.
The film festival is donation-based and will be benefiting Sierra Club’s Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO) youth program. Sierra Club believes all people have the right to connect to nature. The goal of ICO is to reduce barriers and expand access for children, youth and families with limited opportunities to explore and enjoy the outdoors by providing gear, transportation, trip expenses, food, and training. If you are not able to make a donation at this time, please still enjoy the films.

ICO COMMUNITY CAMPFIRE NIGHT
February 21, 2021, Time 7:00PM EST
Our second night will be our ICO Community Campfire Night, a one-of-a-kind night, featuring short films and documentaries curated by ICO members and students that better reflect and inspire the diverse children and families that our ICO’s serve. It will be more BIPOC youth-centric, using messaging and special guests to connect with our youth, and will serve as a platform to promote ICO groups nationwide.
Our 45 nationwide all-volunteer-run ICO groups nationwide conduct some 900 outings for approximately 14,000 participants each year by partnering with local youth groups (Community-based organizations, schools...) to co-create affirming experiences. We engage by engaging youth in fun activities including that range from hiking, paddling, camping, climbing, skiing and stewardship while promoting wellness, leadership, and & conservation.
& building a more diverse community of trained leaders committed to contributing to a more just, equitable, and inclusive Outdoors For All movement.
