The first ‘Green City Web Portal’ rolls out with the City of Fort Lauderdale leading the way. The Community Greenhouse Foundationâ€™s â€œGreen Communitiesâ€ program provides residents, organizations and businesses of the community a resource to discover, educate, promote and communicate the benefits of a â€œgreenerâ€ community and life in South Florida.
With the goal of establishing fifteen green city web portals, we’re excited to announce a partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale for the establishment of the first green city site, under our program.
GreenFtLauderdale.com provides a conduit to learn, educate, promote and communicate the benefits of a â€œgreenerâ€ community. The goal of the site is to provide communities with the resources and information related to sustainable green living and a more sustainable future.
The site focuses on three main content channels: articles, directory and events. The articles section contains stories and profiles about people and organizations doing good things in the community. We promote the idea of being greener or living sustainably, by showing success stories–people making a difference. Articles are divided into major categories including, technology, sustainability, art, balance, ethics, faith, fitness, nature and teamwork– all which can influence the ability of a community to become more sustainable.
Our local directory provides a resource for the community to find organizations, city resources and businesses that differentiate themselves by being green and offering product and services that indeed make Ft Lauderdale a better place. The directory offers the opportunity for businesses to “Get Listed” and support the efforts of Community Greenhouse Foundation. Sponsoring the site is a tax deductible donation.
And the events section of the site will showcase great things and happenings that go on in the city and area throughout the year.
GreenFtLauderdale.com will be launched on April 26, 2008 at the City of Fort Lauderdaleâ€™s Green Living Expo celebrating Earth day and Arbor day. If you would like to find out more about the program, please visit www.greenftlauderdale.com Thank you in Advance for supporting and promoting the vision of a â€œGreener Ft. Lauderdaleâ€
