Last Tuesday, January 31, 2012, the DC Greening Embassies Forum had their official signing ceremony. During the event, representatives from international embassies here in Washington, DC and the DC government signed a pledge outlining what steps they will take to green their embassies and give back to the city in a sustainable way. We got several short interviews with Ambassadors and embassy representatives, as well as prominent officials from organizations like the State Department, the World Bank, and the United Nations Environment Programme. Today and tomorrow, we will be releasing these videos for you to view here on the blog! Here are a few:
Patrick Kennedy, Under Secretary for Management, U.S. Department of State
Amy Fraenkel, Regional Director (North America), United Nations Environment Program
Shivanti Patel, Representative from USAID
Renee Jones-Bos, Dutch Ambassador to the United States
