The 2014 Green Living DC Expo will be held on Thurs., Sept. 11, at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC). Join the University as it explores how it and the local community can continue to collaborate in adopting sustainable initiatives beyond the Expo and in our everyday lives. The free event will be held on Dennard Plaza on UDC’s Van Ness campus from 3:30 - 8:00 p.m. The Green Living Expo is free and open to the public.
New this year, events will be designed to be “Zero Waste,” meaning water bottles will be discouraged, refuse will be recycled, compostable and recycled paper and plastic goods will be used and food waste will be composted, among other environmentally-friendly initiatives. There will be various programs for kids to help them understand the concept of environmental sustainability. Kid-friendly events will be offered beginning at 3.30 p.m. and listening sessions geared toward adults will begin at 6:00 p.m.
Nearly 50 exhibitors will be on hand to help attendees discover why DC is steadily becoming the model of a sustainable city. Green businesses, energy-saving devices, green roofs, locally grown food, urban forests, urban biking, and green infrastructure are just a few of the featured topics and services that will be available. Visitors can consult with environmental experts while enjoying demonstrations, live music and local food. The event also includes panel discussions, speaker presentations, and an eco-bike tour around the Van Ness campus and the surrounding communities to highlight leading examples of urban sustainability. Kids aged K-12 will be entertained and educated with interactive displays, games and more provided by exhibitors and UDC’s College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES).
The University of the District of Columbia is located at 4200 Connecticut Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 20008. Dennard Plaza is accessible from Van Ness St., just around the corner from the Van Ness metro.
