Send Your #GreenWish to President Obama
As we approach the 2013 Green Inaugural Ball, we’ve covered all the details of the night: picking the venue, carpooling to the event, and even sharing how we’re working to reduce waste. But what we also want to focus on the real purpose of the event: bringing together the environmental and clean energy communities to plan for and celebrate a greener future.
Whether or not you plan to attend the 2013 Green Inaugural Ball, we want you to be a part of this celebration. We want to start President Obama’s next term with positive wishes and ideas for the future. And so, we’re collecting your Green Wishes.
What #GreenWish do you have for the future?
We’re asking you to send us your wishes for the president, our country and for your community using the hashtag #GreenWish on Twitter or leaving comments on this post. Please keep it positive—let’s unite around what we want to see in the future to protect our public lands, wildlife and great waters, and also what kind of clean, sustainable solutions we want from the president.
What will we do with your wishes?
Before you take the plunge and start thinking about your wish, we should probably tell you that we’ll be showcasing these green wishes on the many displays in the Newseum the night of the ball. We’ll be taking full advantage of the Newseum’s latest technology and live broadcasting your green wishes throughout the venue. Don’t have a Twitter account? We invite you to sign up for one here.
We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts and wishes for President Obama’s second term. See you on Sunday!
Looking for ideas? Here are some sample wishes:
- “My #greenwish is to spend more time enjoying our country’s great outdoors!”
- “My #greenwish is to take my kids fishing on cleaner waters in Ohio.”
- “My #greenwish is for reforms to hard rock mining pollution laws.”
- “My #greenwish is for the U.S. to embrace more clean renewable energy!”
