National Sustainable Design Expo featuring EPA's P3 Award
May 9 and 10, 2006
More than 350 college and university students will soon head to the nation's capital to compete for the EPA's Second Annual P3 (People, Prosperity, Planet) Award on the National Mall in Washington, DC. The National Sustainable Design Expo is the showcase for the EPA's P3 Awards featuring novel designs for green buildings, innovative alternative fuel technologies, ideas on rainwater collection, and even options for "greening" the apparel industry.
This is an opportunity to see innovative, cutting-edge technologies developed by university students and their faculty advisors; learn what nonprofit organizations and government agencies are doing to advance sustainability; and experience sustainable products that are currently available. In partnership with industry, Duke University will announce a new sustainability initiative.
The competition will culminate in an awards ceremony to highlight the projects selected to receive the EPA's P3 Award which potentially features a $75,000 grant.
The Green Building Initiative, American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and the International Center for Appropriate and Sustainable Technology will announce separate awards at that time (additional awards). See the National Sustainable Design Expo agenda (open to public) and the P3 Award Ceremony agenda (Award ceremony is by invitation only).
