There are two environmental film festivals taking place this month on opposite coasts. There’s the inaugural San Fransisco Green Film Festival and the long(er) running 19th Annual Environmental Film Festival in our nation’s capital. San Francisco and Washington DC are also hosting a number of other events this month that look appealing, a few of which are detailed below.
Our neighbor to the north – Canada – is putting on a conference about Greenbelts, an urban design must. In addition, there are a few clean energy and clean tech forums that take place throughout the United States. For all of these and more, take a look at our green events calendar.
Let us know of any conferences, events, or festivals in your area. We will gladly add them to our green events calendar. Please send us an email with the event’s name, date, location, description, and website.
