2009 Best Practices
More than 175 people attended these two regional gatherings on May 7 in Richmond and on May 8 in Roanoke. The one-day sessions provided local elected officials and professional staff from around Virginia an abundance of practical help to begin or to advance their energy saving and sustainability efforts.
Forum speakers discussed many of the policies and actions described in the Green Government Challenge and Green Schools Challenge that can lead to becoming a certified "Green Government" or "Green School." In addition, those attending heard the latest on the availability of federal stimulus money for Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants (EECBG).
An assortment of presentations, handouts and photographs from the forums are posted below.
