On April 18 – 20, 2009, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host one of the most exciting sustainability events of the year: the National Sustainable Design Expo on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The Expo hosts exhibitors who will display their sustainable programs or technologies and EPA’s 5th Annual P3 (People, Prosperity and the Planet) Award student design competition. More than 250 college and university students, and their faculty advisors from around the country, will exhibit their designs for a sustainable tomorrow and compete for the prestigious EPA P3 Award. You’ll see novel approaches to green design and buildings, innovative ideas for alternative energy and materials, new technologies for clean drinking water, and more.
The event is free and open to the public. The National Sustainable Design Expo featuring EPA’s P3 Award will take place near the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. between 3rd and 4th streets, NW. The event will be open on Saturday, April 18, 2009 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Sunday, April 19, 2009 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Monday, April 20, 2009 from 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m.
