The Utica Rome Green ExpoTM is a free community event to raise environmental awareness. The theme of the URGE is "Sustainable Healthy Environments" Along with an international, national, and regional perspective , the public will also be exposed to practical everyday solutions . The Expo will have exhibits, activities, and educational workshops demonstrating many products and services that promote sustainability . The Expo will strive to show how these sustainable features not only save the consumer money but also have the added benefit of improving their way of life. Attendees might even find future jobs and business ventures in the green economy The URGE will go beyond buzzwords to provide valuable information in a civil and non-partisan manner.

The URGE will take place on September 12, 13, 14, 2008 September 13th and 14th are free and open to the public. September 12th however, is reserved as a networking event for the exhibitors, others in the business community, political and public figures, members of the media, and invited guests. Guests will be able to sample some delicious finger foods and refreshments, enjoy listening to our keynote speaker(s), and get an advanced look at the indoor exhibits. Tickets will be required . Contact us to Get the URGE for further details. We are looking for a sponsor for this event.

Our change of location to a much larger facility allows us to house both the indoor exhibits and educational workshops under one roof. This will greatly improve the flow of the event and make for a much improved layout. Outdoor exhibits will be placed in the parking lots adjacent to the Clinton Arena. Tasty organic and healthy green fare will also be sold

Any proceeds will go toward making the URGE an annual event. Hopefully the EXPO can also generate enough funds to continue to promote and foster green activities year round throughout our region. We are especially interested in fostering K-12 involvement, since they will be the future stewards of our environment. Monies raised from the Expo and the concessions will enable us to offer prizes and awards to area students for environmentally themed projects and contests.

We'll introduce our Green Local 175TM campaign , to make our green economy come alive and thrive. The URGE is currently partnering with Utica Monday Night to help carry on the green message. Please contact the URGE if your company, organization, or agency would like to do the same. Here are additional ways you can Support the URGE
