Greening American Worship
 
November 2nd & 3rd, 2010
 
Courtyard by Marriott Kaua‘i at Coconut Beach
(formerly the Aston Kaua‘i Beach at Makaiwa) 
 
Members and leaders of Churches, Mosques, Synagogues, Temples, and other religious organizations will gather on the Garden Isle of Kauai to discuss the latest in sustainable energy sources that will power their facilities, ways to support member families and neighboring communities through organic gardens and backyard farms in varying geographic climates and regions, and contemporary reducing, re-using, and recycling programs that demonstrate responsible stewardship.
 
We will have presentations from the kauaian Institute, Kauai Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC), county of Kauai (no representative but distributing recycling information), Regenerations Botanical Garden, Hawaii Solar Energy Association, and the Akamai Backyard Learning (green school) from Kilauea. In addition, we will participate in a guided tour of Kauai’s Hindu Monastery to learn more about their environmental friendly projects.
 
Green technologies are developing constantly and will impact eventually every major sector of the economy. This Conference “Greening American Worship” offers the opportunity for worship centers of all sizes to learn from experts in the field the latest in green initiatives, potential impact on them, their communities and member families, and build green alliances with one another to source ideas, funding, and long-term green project development.
 
Rich in natural resources with pristine ocean, year round wind and sunlight, and a strong and growing cadre of green vendors Hawaii is ideally suited to host Green Hawaii Conferences!
