A ‘green’ or environmentally sustainable community needs commitment and investment at every level. Therefore, Bethesda Green is creating a ground-breaking model of collaboration to address the many challenges facing our community. We serve as a hub with a mission to promote sustainable living practices, build a healthy economy and reduce our collective impact on the environment.
We achieve our mission with a focus on three strategic areas:
- Incubate Green Businesses – Stimulate next generation of sustainable businesses
- Educate the Community About Sustainability – Raise awareness and inspire action through programs, online communications and education center
- Facilitate the Implementation of Green Solutions – Catalyst for physical infrastructure and programs that make Bethesda a more sustainable community
Come join us as we reduce our environmental footprint, strengthen our local economy, and inspire an environmental ethic. Together, we can make this area a better place for us to live, work and play, and a model that is being replicated beyond this region.
