The ideas for the 2016 Green Ideas Challenge are in! From butterfly gardens to art classes, this year's green ideas provide brilliant suggestions for making Alexandria an even greener place to live, work and visit!
ACTion Alexandria is once again hosting the Green Ideas Challenge, starting on Wednesday, June 1. For the fourth year, ACTion is asking local nonprofits and community members, working in partnerships with local organizations, to submit their ideas for making Alexandria an even greener, more sustainable place to live, work and visit.
Last June, ACTion Alexandria announced the winners of the Green Ideas Challenge, a competition to find the best ideas for making Alexandria greener and cleaner. Thanks to a generous sponsorship from The Dominion Foundation, ACTion was able to fund four projects benefiting Alexandria. Six months into the projects, ACTion went back to check in with the 2014 grantees.
How would you make Alexandria a greener, more sustainable community?
On February 29, 2012, Eco-City Alexandria, Alexandria Environmental Policy Commission, and ACTion Alexandria teamed up to launch the Alexandria Green Ideas Challenge. We asked Alexandria to submit their ideas for making Alexandria a greener, more sustainable community. Our goal was to harness the incredible talent, intelligence and creativity of Alexandria citizens to generate and prioritize ideas for sustainability and serve as a community catalyst to move our city closer to being a true eco-city!
