Keep it Simple: Helping People Take Action Because They Want To, Not Because They Have To
Main Ballroom

Joel Greene has the unique perspective of peering on both sides of the fences when it comes to the public and understanding used oil and household hazardous waste. As host of the PBS television show “Curiosity Quest Goes Green”, his job is to explore what people are curious about and explain and demonstrate it in a way that can be understood by a 4th grader. Joel Greene’s travels around the country have allowed him to explore a vast array of episodes such as battery recycling, HHW, storm water, etc. Through the medium of television, he is able to create awareness within communities about sustainability and instill a passion for the environment that transcends science and legislation. Greene’s “keep it simple” messaging and approach to complicated topics at hand will leave you feeling, like his television audience that you’re not just doing your job…you are making a difference.
