Clean Currents Launches the 2nd Annual Green Neighborhood Challenge

Posted on October 12, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The Green Neighborhood Challenge (or GNEC) is a community challenge for neighborhoods, schools, faith-based institutions, and other organizations to earn benefits for working toward greening their communities.

Clean Currents provides wind power for homes, but also encourages and supports green neighborhood efforts that help build sustainable futures. Since Clean Currents aims to be the front-door to sustainability for area residents, this program serves as one way for us to give back to the community. We aim to engage, motivate and connect green leaders across the Mid-Atlantic to form a community of likeminded people and businesses.

Groups who sign up for this challenge and work to spread environmental conscientiousness in their communities will be rewarded for their efforts. Based on the level of activity of the GNEC groups, Clean Currents will give money back to the groups’ environmental project of choice.

Throughout the program, Clean Currents will offer free workshops on building community organizing skills, furthering one’s education on climate change, policy, energy efficiency, and more!

GNEC II just started on October 1st 2010 and runs through April 22nd (Earth Day!) 2011. If you or someone you know would like to get involved in this program, contact Kristin Schulz, the GNEC program coordinator: kschulz@cleancurrents.com or 301.754.0430 ext.716.

Empowering individuals, building strong communities, and making going green fun and exciting!
