Join Alexandria’s Eco-City Summit, Saturday, May 10
Help Create Alexandria’s Environmental Charter and Action Plan


The City of Alexandria invites the public to participate in charting the City’s environmental future at the Eco-City Summit at T. C. Williams High School, on Saturday, May 10. This Summit, scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., is part of the City’s Eco-City Alexandria Initiative.

The Eco-City Summit will address the development of the City’s first Eco-City Charter, which outlines the guiding principles and foundation for the City’s environmental vision and future. The Summit will provide residents with opportunities to provide feedback, input, and discussion on the City’s draft Eco-City Charter; and to assist in the creation of a draft Environmental Action Plan, which will include concrete environmental actions the City will carry out over the next 10 to 20 years.

Mayor Robert “Bob” Harvey from Waitakere, New Zealand, a pioneer in the field of environmental awareness and community sustainability, will serve as the Summit’s keynote speaker. Local elected officials, city businesses, and civic organizations will also participate and have the opportunity to share ideas, strategies, and areas of interest for the overall sustainable future of the City.

Residents interested in attending RSVP at Eco-CitySummit@alexandriava.gov. For more information about Eco-City Alexandria Initiative, please call the City’s Department of  Transportation and Environmental Services at 703.838.4966, or visit www.alexandriava.gov/tes and http://ecocity.ncr.vt.edu .
