Subject: EPA's National Center for Environmental Research is conducting its 4th Annual Sustainable Design Expo

Hi

The Fourth Annual National Sustainable Design Expo will be held
Sunday-Tuesday, April 20-22, 2008 on the National Mall in Washington,
DC. Over 40 Exhibitors and over 50 P3 teams will demonstrate their
sustainable designs on the National Mall between 3rd and 4th streets
near the Capitol Building. The Expo showcases new products for green
buildings, innovative alternative energy technologies, strategies for
rainwater collection and purification, and many more sustainable
technologies.

In conjunction with Expo, EPA hosts the Annual P3 (People, Prosperity,
and the Planet) Award competition. EPA, in conjunction with over 40
partners, launched the P3 Award in 2004 to respond to the challenges of
the developed and developing world in moving toward sustainability. This
national competition enables college students to research, develop and
design scientific, technical and policy solutions to sustainability
challenges. Their designs are helping to achieve the mutual goals of
economic prosperity while providing a higher quality of life and
protecting the planet. Students and their faculty advisors compete for
EPA's P3 Award and the opportunity of up to an additional $75,000 in
funding to move their designs to the marketplace or implement them in
the field.

This event is being co-sponsored by the Cloud Institute for
Sustainability Education and the World Environment Center . The
National Sustainable Design Expo and EPA's P3 Award competition provide
a unique opportunity to see new science; discover innovative,
cutting-edge technologies; and learn what nonprofit organizations and
government agencies are doing to advance sustainability. The event is
free and open to the public.
