NAFTC-Organized National Events on October 17
The West Virginia University-based National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium is getting ready for the seventh installment of its biennial National Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Day Odyssey, which takes place around the U.S. on Friday, October 17.
Founded in 1992, the AFV Day Odyssey is a way for NAFTC and more than 50 consortium member schools to promote clean energy options for transportation. There will be more than 100 national events, with the kickoff on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
This year’s theme is Driving Toward a Clean, Secure Energy Future.
PERC and Honda Are Sponsors
Thousands of people, NAFTC says, will join governmental agencies, environmental organizations, businesses, universities, community colleges, and secondary schools across the nation for local Odyssey events.
“Since its inception,” says NAFTC, “Odyssey has reached more than 400 million individuals through event attendance and media reach.”
Odyssey “makes the public aware of the viability of alternative fuel vehicles in their lives,” says national coordinator Judy Moore.
Key sponsors this year include American Honda and PERC, the Propane Education & Research Council. National partners include the U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Program, the U.S. National Park Service, the Smithsonian Institution, and AmeriCorps NCCC – National Civilian Community Corps.
