First Ever National Arts and Environment Summit

If you've been listening in recently, you've heard about WTMD's Eco Tour. This week Terre Jones, President and CEO of Wolf Trap joined us. We talked about the first ever National Arts and Environment Summit being held this Monday.

Wolf Trap invited "Americans for the Arts, The Aspen Institute, Reverb, Booz Allen Hamilton, and NPS Climate Friendly Parks Program; Wolf Trap Foundation President and CEO, Terre Jones, will host an intimate gathering of environmental and arts experts, along with government, community, and business leaders at the Corporate Headquarters of Booz Allen Hamilton in McLean, VA. For over six hours, attendees will operate as a collective think tank of sorts, with the end goal of outlining a list of strategies and solutions for fully engaging performing artists and performing arts presenters in environmental stewardship." (Wolf Trap Blog)

On Sunday they'll be demonstrating their efforts to go green, details here. Want to get involved? The last hour of the seminar will be online allowing you to provide input and ask questions on how the performing arts industry can be more environmentally friendly. Click here to register for the Webinar.

I'll be in attendance Sunday and Monday with intentions of informing you on what the Performing Arts Industry is doing to help save the environment.

Tune in Wednesday mornings at 6 & 8 on the WTMD Morning Show, this Wednesday we learn about simple changes made around the house that make sense economically and help the environment.
