October 2011 Clean Energy and Sustainability EventsAs we mentioned earlier this week, the 21st annual Solar Tour is taking place throughout the Washington DC area. This is one of several events in and around the nation’s capital. Check out the 2nd Green Revolution’s calendar for more information. The big annual event in the green building industry, Greenbuild, takes place early in the month up in Toronto. There are a few other conferences taking place in Canada, including “Moving Business Toward Sustainability” which is listed below.

There are several education based conferences as well this month. The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, which 2nd Green Revolution covered last year, takes place this month in Pittsburgh. In addition, the North American Association for Environmental Education is also holding its annual conference in October.

While the calendar has quite a few listings, it is far from complete. 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.
