On November 9-10, 2010 in Washington, DC, the Center for Environmental Innovation and Leadership (CEIL) will present the GOVgreen Conference & Expo, an event to bring together government employees, contractors and suppliers to learn how to achieve sustainability goals as mandated by President Barack Obama's Executive Order 13514.
A variety of programs from notable and respected speakers (such as Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Dr. Dorothy Robyn) will be offered, addressing the critical topics of energy, transportation, conservation and facilities. There will be a session called "Moving Forward: Workforce Transportation Policies and Programs" that will discuss how federal employees can travel and commute to reduce carbon emissions. I'd be stunned if this session doesn't mention bicycling.
GOVgreen is free for all federal government and military personnel to attend. However, there is a special link for non-federal/military employees to get a free expo-only pass.
