As we’ve noted the 4th Annual Green Brooklyn…Green City Conference is taking place at Borough Hall on Thursday, September 18. Coordinated by the Center for the Urban Environment, it’s billed as “New York City’s largest showcase of green and sustainability issues, programs, and products…Green Brooklyn…Green City 2008 will feature workshops and discussions led by several of the city’s preeminent leaders in sustainable design, green manufacturing, transportation alternatives, energy efficiency, environmental education, and sustainable food.” The event starts at 11:30AM and runs through 5PM. Of course, it’s free and open to the public. There’s more about the event here. CUE sent us the full workshop list, which is published in full after the jump.
