Sunday, March 8 from 12 – 5 pm




This year’s Going Green Matters will be held on Sunday, March 8 from 12 Noon – 5 PM. We are very excited to announce that in addition to exhibitor displays, the Eco-Zone, and our recycling event, we will feature Skidmore, Owings & Merrill’s (SOM) interactive, stunning and educational displays developed for their Great Lakes Century Vision Plan. Inspired by the centennial of Burnham’s Plan of Chicago in 2009, SOM began a 100-year “call to vision” that outlines measures to protect the lake system and promote sustainable development in the 21st century.

Last year, Going Green Matters drew more than 1,100 residents, neighbors, elected officials, water experts, exhibitors and volunteers!  A working solar system, the latest hybrid and electric cars, cooking demonstrations, water displays and the ever popular interactive Eco-Zone inspired all participants.
