8/30/2010

The 2010 Go!Green Tulsa Expo will be Sept. 18 and provide information about saving money and the environment. The expo will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the University of Tulsa’s Allen Chapman Activity Center, 440 S. Gary Ave.

Mayor Dewey Bartlett Jr. is slated to open the event at 9 a.m. and begin the program with a discussion of City of Tulsa sustainability initiatives.

The remainder of the day will feature seminars led by regional experts. Every seminar is designed to help people learn more about many topics related to sustainability, including “Building a Sustainable City,” “Understanding Your Environmental Footprint,” “Sustainable Food Movement,” “Green Cleaning,” “Sustainable Personal Care” and “Green Renovation & New Construction.”

A special presentation will offer a panel of Tulsa-area university representatives who will talk about the leadership these institutions are providing in sustainability. Other presentations will address home design and finance and the benefits of community medicine.

Registration is required so adequate lunches are available. Registration materials and additional information is available on the AIA Eastern Oklahoma website, www.aiaeok.org, and City of Tulsa website.
