The Expo and Awards will feature environmentally-focused organizations for a day of family fun followed by a ceremony to honor Athens' sustainability superstars. Through peer nominations within the community, the GreenFest Awards recognize sustainability leaders in Athens-Clarke County schools, businesses, community organizations, & government. These awards celebrate individuals, businesses, and organizations that have gone above and beyond in the ways of environmental stewardship, innovative sustainable design, and other community improvements. Join us on February 23, 2019 at The Athens-Clarke County Library to celebrate sustainability in Athens, specifically recognizing these dedicated award recipients.
