Event Details

The Chicago Green Office Challenge is excited to partner with the Green Event App to offer Challenge participants an opportunity to network, sample sustainable food, beverages, gifts and giveaways and learn more about how to coordinate a meeting or event consistent with your sustainability policies.

Meetings and events can generate a lot of pollution and waste. Don’t let them undermine your hard work keeping your office green! Join us for a hands-on demonstration of the dos and don’ts of green meetings and events, taste sustainable food from local green caterers, and walk away with samples of sustainable event products.  Learn how the Green Event App can help you find and evaluate vendors for all your sustainable meeting and event needs and discover how you can earn points for the Chicago Green Office Challenge by hosting a green event in the near future.

Green Event App (www.greeneventapp.org) is a new free mobile-friendly web-app designed to make it easier to plan greener meetings and events. It includes detailed profiles of sustainable practices for more than 100 venues, hotels, restaurants, caterers and event suppliers in the City of Chicago.  Users can use the search functions to find suppliers who match their sustainability needs. The project is a nonprofit collaboration between Green Events Source, CNT Energy and the Chicago Chapter of the Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC), in collaboration with the City of Chicago, with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
