Energy from renewable sources – the sun, wind, biofuels and water – minimizes net carbon emissions and has major potential to help resolve climate change. Sustainable living practices – choices and actions based on "total effects" on the environment – can help slow the pace of global warming.
2006 Washington State Odyssey Days offers the latest key developments
and updates in biofuels and advanced technology vehicles; solar power
and other renewable energy resources; and sustainable business practices,
as organizations and private citizens join the global effort to combat
greenhouse gas emissions and global warming.
Founded in 1992, Odyssey Days is now an international event in 59+ cities
across the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Germany! Over 24,000 people attended
Odyssey events in 2004, with over 24 million people impacted by media
messages about the purpose and focus of Odyssey events. 2006 Odyssey events
around the world are poised to reach even larger audiences, given rising
fuel prices, concerns over global warming, and increased awareness of
the need to model environmental stewardship through creative, sustainable
solutions and attitudes.
2006 Washington State Odyssey Days will offer free informative workshops;
talks by leading experts; presentations by entrepreneurs developing new
energy resources; renewable energy educational exhibits; "Ride-and-Drive"
demonstrations of advanced and prototype alternative energy vehicles;
and updates from policy makers about new incentives to encourage non-petroleum
energy solutions. On October 13th and 14th events throughout the SCC campus
will inform, entertain and engage all those with a curiosity about or
an exploding interest in the alternative and renewable energy fields.
