We’re proud to announce, after 8 years of hosting the Go Green Greenpoint Festival, we are expanding with a year-round digital hub for all things eco. We aim to provide Greenpointers with a central resource to organize all local environmental stories, events, and resources. We will share these resources on many channels so it is easy for you to get involved. We get it – you’re busy and need a resource that fits in your life. So follow us and we’ll be that guide for you.

All of this is made possible by the Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund (GCEF), which has provided us with the funds to accomplish our mission of creating a platform for the community and local organizations to get engaged with environmental issues. As a GCEF recipient, we will begin with Greenpoint this year and subsequently expand to Williamsburg, North Brooklyn and beyond. Our vision is to introduce a replicable model for community engagement focused on environmental issues. With support from the local city district, borough officials, and incredible companies such as VICE Media, we believe that this goal is definitely within our reach.
It’s never too early to start getting involved. If you have any information about local environmental news or upcoming events in the Greenpoint area, feel free to share with us by emailing Romey@gogreenbk.org.
