For seventeen years and counting, USGBC National Capital Region’s A Midsummer Night’s Green has brought together sustainability advocates from across the DC metro area to toast the best of the best in local green building. A Midsummer Night's Green features the announcement of the winners of our Community Leader Awards, which honor excellence in high-performance design, environmental stewardship and community impact. We are thrilled to have Tommy Wells, the Director of DC's Department of Energy and the Environment as our keynote speaker for the awards ceremony.
In addition, event attendees will vote to determine which of our impressive nominees will take home the prestigious People's Choice Award.
This premier summer social event and fundraiser offers networking, delicious hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, and unique experiences. Attendees can sit in the driver's seat or take a test drive of a BMW i Model, compliments of BMW of Sterling. For our 2019 event, we're excited to have a signature tasting corner, which will feature samples from Beyond Meat of their plant-based burger that looks, cooks and tastes like beef as well as samples from Tayst of their delicious, sustainably-made coffee. Attendees will also have the opportunity to experience virtual reality, courtesy of Grimm+Parker, and to make and take home memories of the evening at our photo booth, sponsored by Federal Realty.
Proceeds from this event support our education, advocacy and volunteer programs. We hope you'll join us as we celebrate the innovative projects and inspiring volunteers working to make a greener future for all in the National Capital Region!
Last year we upped the sustainability factor of A Midsummer Night's Green by tracking and off-setting our carbon footprint and calculating our waste diversion rate. We intend to continue these practices in 2019, and to push even further in our efforts to host the greenest event possible.
To help minimize our carbon production, we're incentivizing green travel choices through our Sustainable Transportation Giveaway. Attendees who walk, bike or take public transportation will qualify for great prizes provided by our Experience Partners. You won't find plastic straws at our bars, and we'll be serving local beers from kegs to reduce glass in our waste stream. These measures are all in addition to our standard green event policies, which include local food and beverage sourcing, avoiding cut flowers, and reusable serving ware.
Together, our volunteer A Midsummer Night's Green host committee and USGBC staff have worked to create an event that not only celebrates local achievements in sustainability but also exemplifies best practices in green event planning.
