What makes Carmel green?  Did you ever wonder why Carmel has so many roundabouts or why the city feels recycling is important? Did you know that roundabouts save up to 24,000 gallons of gasoline per year and 228 tons of CO2 annually and that recycling is cost-effective, energy efficient and environmentally responsible.  Did you know that the 106th Street water plant is a registered LEED project?  Mayor Brainard will be our special guest speaker  and will talk about the green initiatives the City of Carmel has taken to reduce our carbon footprint.   Mayor Brainard will also talk about his experience with the President's Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience.

Cities must take action on Climate Change - Indy Star OPED, Mayor Brainard, December 2013

Learn the facts about what recent reports say about climate change and its local impact.  Also, hear about the new EPA carbon rules that the federal government has established.  Everyone needs to be informed!

Earth Charter Indiana and the Indiana Bicentennial Commission will present the Bicentennial Green Legacy Community Award to Carmel. To present the award are:

  • John Gibson, the State Coordinator for Earth Charter Indiana’s bicentennial initiative, Sustainable Indiana 2016.  In this position he has recruited and coordinates a state-wide staff of volunteer green-legacy leaders who discover, catalog and showcase Hoosier-based climate solutions as a bicentennial legacy.  In 2010 Gibson received the Cultural Vision “Lifetime Achievement Award” from NUVO, Central Indiana’s major weekly news magazine.  In 2012 he was given a “Lifetime Achievement award”  by the Hoosier Environmental Council.
  • Perry Hammock, the Executive Director of the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.  In that role, he has the wonderful assignment to help shepherd the State’s biggest party in two hundred years!  With a dedicated group of volunteers, Indiana will ‘celebrate history and ignite the future’ for Hoosiers across the State and around the world.  Prior to coming to the Commission in March of 2014, he spent 32 years at Ivy Tech Community College, the bulk of that time as Executive Director of Ivy Tech Foundation, the college’s fund raising arm.

Door prizes will be raffled.

We're delighted to partner with the Carmel Clay Public Library and the City of Carmel to present the Greening of Carmel.
