The National Environmental Hall of Fame will recognize Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch at 7 p.m. Monday night, Jan. 3 during the City Council Meeting located at 45 Lyon Terrace, City Council Chambers, First floor, Bridgeport CT.

Environmental Halls of Fame are being established in several communities.
- The National Environmental Hall of Fame believe that in each community there are at least a dozen groups or individuals who deserve to be recognized for their contribution to helping the environment.
- Our goal is to encourage these groups and individuals through such recognition.
- We feel it is most appropriate to first honor the mayor and sustainability director in each community on behalf of the city’s sustainability initiatives.
Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield, creators of Chicken Soup for the Soul, endorsed several of our books. In March 2007, they inspired us to create a book, Heroes of the Planet Earth, for Al Gore’s 7/7/07 Live Earth concert.
The Hall of Fame made exhibits out of the features in Heroes of the Planet Earth for the National Green Museum and Environmental Hall of Fame. From there they gave awards to the heroes of the environment at their National Environmental Hall of Fame awards ceremonies beginning in 2008.
In 2009 at our National Green Museum expo in Chicago, National Environmental Science Fair students created a book, Hope for Planet Earth, which inspired them to create Community Green Guides throughout the United States.
