NEW! Online Green Event Guide for Community Event Leaders
Our new online Green Event Guide details Green-Greener-Greenest planning options, and provides event organizing teams with handy forms to set sustainability goals and measure outcomes. 

The Green Event Guide details Green-Greener-Greenest options for seven key areas common to the planning of most kinds of events: 

• Food and Food Service
• Venue
• Vendors
• Housing, 
• Transportation
• Communications and Event Materials
• People

A fillable-form Planning Tool will guide event coordinators in setting green goals.
A Committee Action Tasks Worksheet makes it easy to delegate activities and set task timelines.
Model Bid Specs can help organizers solicit sustainability elements from service providers. 
Sample Metrics provide examples to help event planners measure their green impacts.
An extensive Glossary, with sections linked from the Green-Greener-Greenest listings, will help build everyone’s sustainability knowledge while working with the Green Event Guide’s concepts and action options.

A webinar presentation of these resources, held on October 10, 2017, will be archived on the Guide homepage.
