It’s time to start planning your 2017 Bioenergy Day event! With more than four months to go, there’s plenty of time to decide how your organization will recognize the day, sharing with audiences old and new the many benefits of bioenergy.
This year, we are highlighting the economic benefits of bioenergy. The presence of bioenergy in a community creates jobs, enhances revenue and forest products markets, and reduces waste. Our video on bioenergy, forest products and forestry in Northwestern Montana will illustrate how manufacturers convert leftover fuels into energy.
There are many ways to contribute to Bioenergy Day 2017. We’ve uploaded our Bioenergy Day 2017 Participation Guide on the site to help you brainstorm the ways to mark Bioenergy Day, with some best practices and sample materials. You can also look around out website, www.bioenergyday.org, to see how other groups have approached Bioenergy Day.
Successful past activities have included:
- visits by school groups,
- tours for elected officials and their staff members,
- staff appreciation days
- retail discounts
- newspaper advertisements and/or opinion pieces
- panel discussions
If your organization plans to participate in Bioenergy Day 2017, please register on the Bioenergy Day website so we can recognize the event on our site.
