About The EcoEnlighten the Fossil Fuel Man Event

The Fossil Fuel Man represents all of us. No one is perfect and we all grew up living in the Fossil Fuel Age. To one extent or another all of our daily lives depend on fossil fuels and we can all do more to reduce our need for them. The goal of the event is for participants/educators to EcoEnlighten the Fossil Fuel Man, raise his spirits, and encourage him, along with all of us to learn more, take action, and become part of the solution.

About the 3rd annual Sustainability Scavenger Hunt and Awards Ceremony

BE+’s very unique and imaginative digital scavenger hunt is the perfect way to celebrate Earth Day while engaging green building practitioners and pioneers across the country and around the world. For the past three years the scavenger hunt has been open to all regardless of location. The 2023 event ran from April 4th through April 23rd, with a lavish awards celebration event held April 27th in Boston. The celebration included a catered dinner, craft beer from Nantucket’s Cisco Brewing, an awards ceremony where winners received a vast supply of prizes and of course a chance to EcoEnlighten the Fossil Fuel Man!
