Fair/Exposition - Green & Global: Starting Local

Vision:  Raise awareness of green practices around the world among the Pittsburgh community.

Community Need:  College students and Pittsburgh community members may not be aware of eco-friendly lifestyles or issues of the environment and sustainability.

Impact:  College students and community members enjoyed interactive stations centered on topics such as energy, creative reuse, and water conservation in the O'Hara Ballroom at the University of Pittsburgh.
