(02/24/09)  West Palm Beach residents, local business owners and environmental groups will help lead the City of West Palm Beach’s first-ever Sustainability Summit on Wednesday, February 25, 2009.  The Summit begins at 10:00 a.m. and runs until 5:00 p.m.  It will be held at the Harriet Himmel Theater in CityPlace.

More than 300 people are expected to attend the Summit, sharing ideas on how to conserve energy, reduce carbon emissions and make the City’s economy more sustainable.

The Summit’s goal is developing a “greenprint” to guide the City of West Palm Beach’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions.  The City’s newly-formed Office of Sustainability will help lead the Summit and implement the “greenprint.”
