The 10th Annual Greening the Statehouse

Thank you very much for attending the 10th Annual Greening the Statehouse!   We had a record-breaking turnout that we approximated at around 550 people, including friends from many different parts of our state.

This year’s event was held at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds in Danville, Indiana on December 2nd.   We will be posting YouTube videos of this year’s gathering on this page, but in the meantime, please be sure to go to our Facebook page for some of our videostreaming this day.

Greening the Statehouse (GTS) is Indiana’s largest annual gathering of environmental-minded citizens! It is your year’s best opportunity to get up to speed on Indiana’s environment, to celebrate our movement’s successes, and to meet kindred spirits from across the state.

This year GTS was a day of how-to’s: how to organize in your community, how to engage with lawmakers, how to communicate with the media, and so many more; we focused on practical and necessary skills that should be in every advocate’s toolbox!

A detailed program for this year’s event can be found here!

This year’s keynote speaker, Mitch Hescox, told a powerful story: While he spent his early years in the fossil fuel business, he has transformed into one of America’s leading conservative advocates for climate action. As head of the Evangelical Environmental Network, he has spoken strongly in favor of renewable energy, clean air & clean water policies. 

A huge thank you to our GTS Green Business sponsors:
