A national day of celebration of the sports industry's accomplishments and commitments.
The Obama White House
Through months of negotiations, Green Bear and the Alliance worked with the Obama White House to come together to declare and support the first annual Green Sports Day.
A Celebration of all the Good.
Together, Green Bear, the Alliance and the Obama Administration challenged the sports industry and its fans to do more. Inspiring the country through presidential support, the call went out to professional and collegiate sports, to corporations and NGOS, to industry leaders and small town heroes seeking greater commitments to combating climate change and inspiring fans across the country.
