Get Ready For GreenFestival!

Green Festival™, is a joint project of Global Exchange and Green America (formerly Co-op America), that celebrates what’s working in your communities—for people, business and the environment. 

The event will focus on finding solutions to help make our lives healthier—socially, economically and environmentally. Individuals will join with business and community leaders and come together to discuss critical issues that impact us at home and abroad. Organizations and businesses will showcase programs and products that restore the planet and all that inhabit it. Neighbor-to-neighbor connections will be formed, and skills will be shared to empower people to create positive change in the world. 

Enjoy more than 125 renowned authors, leaders and educators; great how-to workshops; cutting-edge films; fun activities for kids; organic beer and wine; delicious vegetarian cuisine and diverse live music. Shop in our unique marketplace of more than 350 eco-friendly businesses—everything from all-natural body care products and organic cotton clothing to Fair Trade gifts and beautiful kitchen tiles made from renewable resources.

See the most recent developments in renewable energy and green technology, sample Fair Trade chocolate and coffee and learn how to invest in your community, green your home and avoid products made in sweatshops.

GreenFestival will take place in the following cities:

  • Denver - May 2-3
  • Chicago - May 16-17
  • Washington, D.C. - October 10-11
  • San Francisco - November 13-15
