General information

Sustainability Stage presenters agree to provide a minimum of one 40-minute presentation, including questions.

  • The stage is approximately 16 feet wide and 8 feet deep.
  • A laptop and 62-inch screen for titles and pictures provided.
  • Seating will be spread out to accommodate social distancing.


  • Presentations should focus on education (not products or sales) and be interactive with the audience but not involve inviting the audience onto the stage or hands-on audience activities.
  • Presentations addressing success stories related to climate resiliency and carbon reduction are particularly encouraged.
  • MPCA presentations about food should focus on how-to and environmental impact and sustainability rather than preparation. We ask that you not heat things up, prepare food using the cook top, or bring in samples from home. (The Minnesota State Fair has strict rules regarding food.)
