ECOFEST is now celebrating its 18th anniversary. ECOFEST is the largest environmental event on the East Coast, and is unequaled in its broad base of public and private sector support.
In partnership with The New York Times, ECOFEST 2004 was an extraordinary event held on September 19th at Lincoln Center. Organized and produced by the West Side Cultural Center, ECOFEST is a unique cultural and educational environmental festival, free to the public.
A major focus of ECOFEST is conservation of our natural resources and innovative alternative-energy technologies. This year's ECOFEST will again feature the SEOTO (Sources of Energy Other Than Oil) Exposition, which demonstrates a wide variety of alternative energy vehicles ranging from prototypes of solar cars to electric and natural gas vehicles already in use throughout the public and private sectors.
In addition to the SEOTO Exposition, the ECOFEST Fashion Show and the ECOFEST Environmental Education Conference.
Key federal, state and city government agencies and major corporations, among them NYSERDA, BP Solar, United States Postal Service, US Department of Energy, US EPA, PSE&G, NYC DOT, NYC DEP, New York Power Authority and Consolidated Edison, provide continuing support to ECOFEST. Also providing substantial support have been Ben and Jerry's, SNAPPLE, KeySpan Energy, General Motors, Ford, Daimler-Chrysler, Nissan and Toyota.
These enlightened organizations from the public and private sectors, brought together at ECOFEST with tens of thousands of New Yorkers, are provided a great opportunity to make their environmental issues and involvement known to the ever-increasing audience of concerned Americans. ECOFEST and its participants benefit from publicity, promotions and extensive advertising, and have always been generously covered by local and national media.
Through dynamic exhibits, stimulating entertainment and celebrity performers and speakers, fosters public awareness about opportunities for environmental change. It spurs people to get involved in making their homes, communities, schools, offices and personal life practices more ecologically advanced and environmentally sound.
ECOFEST has the support of major environmental organizations such as The New York Zoological Society, the Audubon Society, the United Nations Environmental Program, the Sierra Club, the Nature Conservancy, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Rainforest Alliance, The New York Department of Environmental Conservation and the Council on the Environment.
