Washington DC - How far could you stretch $10,000 to research, develop, and release a new product? You’d be amazed at the mileage that some colleges get out such a modest budget. The proof is in the EPA’s P3 sustainability design competition that will be featured at the National Sustainable Design Expo.
On May 9 and 10, 2006, EPA will sponsor one of the most exciting sustainability events of the year. Along with our partners and co-sponsors, we’ll be headed to the National Sustainable Design Expo on the National Mall in Washington, DC, and you’re invited. The Expo is the showcase for EPA’s 2nd Annual P3 – People, Prosperity, and the Planet – Awards. More than 350 college and university students from around the country will be exhibiting their designs for a sustainable tomorrow and competing for the prestigious P3 Awards. You’ll see novel designs for green buildings, innovative alternative fuel technologies, ideas on rainwater collection, and even options for “greening” the apparel industry. As President Bush recently said “Technology is changing the way we think,” and the Expo is where you will find some of the technologies that could change our lifestyles.
The National Sustainable Design Expo featuring EPA’s P3 Award
will take place on Tuesday, May 9, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday,
May 10, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. between Constitution and Independence
Avenues and 3rd and 4th Streets in Washington, DC. The event is open
to the public so tell your friends and bring your family.
