There are an extraordinary number of people in our community who are devoting their lives to finding local and global solutions to address climate change and other environmental problems.

On Thursday, October 3, 2013, Bethesda Green will celebrate five years of promoting sustainable living at the historic and newly renovated Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club. Highlights of the evening will include recognizing the 2013 Bethesda Magazine Green Award winners and local leaders who are addressing environmental challenges with innovative solutions.

"The Gala is our time to come together as a community to recognize, be inspired by, and celebrate the achievements of our green champions," said Bethesda Green Executive Director Dave Feldman. "These local businesses, non-profits, government officials and citizens are truly pioneers in local environmental stewardship."

"There are an extraordinary number of people in our community who are devoting their lives to finding local and global solutions to address climate change and other environmental problems," said Steve Hull, editor and publisher of Bethesda Magazine.

On October 3rd, Bethesda Green will connect leaders to encourage collaboration to address challenges such as protecting local watersheds, introducing smart waste management, promoting local and healthy food, and supporting smart urban planning and economic development. This event gives a unique platform for the environmental community in the DC metro area to discover other green initiatives and leverage each other strengths to achieve the vision of a more green and sustainable community.

Feldman added, "Bethesda Green will also share some new green initiatives for the next five years and their vision for sustainable, green Bethesda. These include a greening restaurant program that can be replicated anywhere, greening business series, outreach to local schools, universities, and neighborhood groups to launch green projects."
