Green Michiana Month
June is Green Michiana Month!
On April 22, 2014, thirteen area Mayors and City Leaders gathered at the Center for a Sustainable Future's annual Earth Day Reception to sign a proclamation declaring June as Green Michiana Month. It is a time to educate the public, community organizations, public officials, and civic leaders about the importance of sustainability in changing our world today.
Green Michiana Month encourages community awareness and participation in events and activities that promote sustainable practices and lifestyles.
