Welcome to the Green Cities Expo commerative page. This site is dedicated to the 1000's of volunteers, sponsors, supporters, dignataries and producers of the Green Cities Expo produced on behalf of the United Nations 2005 World Environment Day. This site is maintained by Green Cities Expo producer Seven-Star, Inc.. Seven-Star was invited by The San Francisco Department of Environment, and The United Nations Environment Program to produce what was then the largest B2B/B2G conference and exposition dedicated to the principles of sustainability. This event later transformed into Green Cities a global conference series launched in Orlando, Florida hosted by The City of Orlando, Florida and Orange County Government, Florida. Seven-Star went on to work with the United Nations (UNEP, UNDP, UNV) greening and coordinating a global army of volunteers in the production of the largest concert in the world Live Earth.
