The first annual Atlantic Green Expo, presented by Charlottetown company e365, will take place on Friday, April 21 to Sunday, April 23 at the UPEI School of Sustainable Design Engineering. e365 partners Blake Doyle and Peter Ixkes want to, “stimulate and help to build the green and ‘Clean Tech’ sectors in PEI”.
“There is a variety of Clean Tech options here on the Island and in Atlantic Canada that people may not be aware of. The Expo is a great way to connect the public and industry and get people excited about it”, says Doyle. Coinciding with Earth Day this event will give Islanders the chance to learn more about sustainable products and services available in the Atlantic region.
Dr. Adam Fenech, Director of the Climate Lab at UPEI says that “the opportunity and technologies exist for Prince Edward Island to generate its own energy needs and to become carbon neutral. It is a tall order, but it can be done.”
Atlantic Green Expo will showcase green solutions from eco-friendly exhibitors covering topics such as clean and energy saving technologies, organic farming, eco-friendly products, transportation, watersheds and more. Educational sessions will be held throughout the Expo for people interested in making more environmentally sound decisions when choosing products and services.
Atlantic Green Expo will also feature Keynote speakers and activities for children. Visit Atlantic Green Expo website for further information at www.atlanticgreenexpo.com. Like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for more announcements as we get closer to April 21.
