Local green events in March
Spring is coming... and with it, a bunch of green events in the Baltimore area. Mark your calendars!
Environmental Film Festival in Washington DC, March 11-22.
National Facilities Management & Technology conference, which includes Greentech conference & expo, March 10-12.
The Chesapeake Sustainable Building Alliance usually holds a happy hour on the first Monday of each month: this month it was postponed to 3/9 due to snow. Will be held at Earth Alley, a groovy little green gift shop in Hampden.
Our local USGBC chapter (formerly known as the Baltimore chapter, now the Maryland chapter) is hosting the first annual Chesapeake Green Building Expo on March 25-26.
Baltimore AIA's 2009 spring lecture series promises to be another good one. Catch the first lecture on March 18: architect Stefan Behnisch of Germany will discuss sustainable building design.
Also, the Baltimore Ethical Society is hosting speakers on the topic of sustainability this year. I've been invited to speak on March 29 about how you can take action here in Baltimore to shrink your environmental footprint.
Stay tuned for more green events coming in April, like Baltimore Green Week.
