Who We Are


The Virginia Municipal League's Go Green Virginia initiative (GoGreenVa) recognizes that communities need to take innovative steps to reduce energy usage and promote sustainability. 

Most importantly, member local governments are urged to participate in a friendly competition known as the Green Government Challenge. The "Challenge" is designed to encourage implementation of specific environmental policies and practical actions that not only reduce carbon emissions, but can save local governments money.


VML is a statewide, nonprofit, nonpartisan association of city, town and county governments established in 1905 to improve and assist local governments through legislative advocacy, research, education and other services.

Green Tips
Plant a Tree. In the fall, gather acorns, chestnuts and seeds from maples and other leafy trees and plant them in small pots at home. Keep the saplings for four-five years, then plant them in your own garden, offer them to friends as gifts, or return them to nature. Experiment with different types of seeds. A single tree will absorb one ton of CO2 over its lifetime.
