Green Festivals

The largest green consumer events in the world, drawing up to 200,000 people annually, the Green Festivals are a joint project of Global Exchange and Green America, and celebrate what’s working in our communities—for people, business and the environment.

Think of Green Festival™ as a walk through a sustainable community. It begins with finding solutions to help make our lives healthier—socially, economically and environmentally. Individuals along with business and community leaders come together to discuss critical issues that impact us at home and abroad. Organizations and businesses showcase programs and products that restore the planet and all that inhabit it.  Neighbor-to-neighbor connections are formed, and skills are shared to empower people to create positive change in the world.
