Washington, DC Greens it Up


DC's been making great strides to become one of the greenest cities - both within the local DC government and the federal government. Most recently, Green Builders Council of D.C. and the National Center for Construction Education and Research have launched a "green collar" training program.

This program, developed by Virginia Tech (as a Cavalier, I have to say I am a little bummed it wasn't a UVA program), is intended to train students and construction workers on the USGBC's LEED program, as well as green practices.

as a resident of the D.C. area I'm happy to see programs like this start. Anything that can be done to help the greening of the city become a normal, rather than an exciting exception, is a step in the right direction!
