Get Ready. The Building Green Expo is coming back to New York on April 20th 2010. The Building Green Expo will be held at the 7 World Trade Center and is open to all.
This year, the Building Green Expo will feature an educational focus. Elementary students from the NYC public schools will be invited to attend and take part in an interactive workshop. The workshop will teach students how green initiatives work and how they can become "future green leaders".
Also, this year, they will also hold a Green Contest called "How Green is your Building?". Contest participants will need to demonstrate how their building reduces its carbon footprint and how efficiently it uses energy and water resources. They'll announce the winner at the VIP reception to be held immediately after the day's workshop and events.
This is a good chance for all construction industry folks in NY to network and educate the general public on what their companies do. I know why I will be going there. In addition to the awesome networking, I'm interested in attending some of their workshops and also to see who wins the Green contest.
