Green Life is a community-wide celebration providing citizens with an opportunity to improve their homes, businesses, and community environment. Events are held March through May by our partnering organizations to encourage learning and to provide tools necessary for creating an environmentally friendly community.
The "main event" this year will be the Green Life Expo & Awards on February 23rd at the ACC Library. The Expo and Awards will feature environmentally-focused organizations for a day of family fun followed by a ceremony to honor Athens' sustainability superstars. Through peer nominations within the community, the Green Life Awards recognize sustainability leaders in Athens-Clarke County schools, businesses, community organizations, & government. These awards celebrate individuals, businesses, and organizations that have gone above and beyond in the ways of environmental stewardship, innovative sustainable design, and other community improvements. Join us on February 23, 2019 at The Athens-Clarke County Library to celebrate sustainability in Athens, specifically recognizing these dedicated award recipients. The awards ceremony will take place from 3:00 to 4:30 PM followed by a reception from 4:30 to 5:00 PM .
As part of the annual Green Life awards ceremony, the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government solicits nominations in a variety of environmental areas.
