Canada's largest green consumer show dedicated to educating the public about easy and workable solutions for leading a sustainable lifestyle is happening in less than a month (April 15-17). Why should you visit Toronto's Direct Energy Centre to attend this year? Read on!

Although the 2011 Main Stage Schedule and Business Forum line-up are still work in progress, some brand new attractions have already been announced. Let's check them out one by one.

1. TD Energy Fair

The goal of TD Energy Fair is to educate people about making sustainable energy choices. The amount of freely available information on this topic is often overwhelming and the weight of financial decisions makes it even harder to make the right choices. TD Stage, located in the centre of the Energy Section of the show, will be there to provide some expert advice and education. You will discover all the necessary information about environment trends, renewable energy options, financing for renewable energy projects, green building and sustainable investing. In addition to hearing expert speakers and attending panel discussions, you'll be able to visit TD representatives any time during the Green Living Show to address your questions directly to them.

2. Earth Day Canada EcoMentors Conference

Pay attention, students! The Green Living Show, in partnership with Earth Day Canada, presents the Earth Day Canada EcoMentors Conference. The goal of this series of workshops and training sessions is to provide the education and necessary tools for students to lead environmental programs within their schools and communities. And it comes with a bonus, too: all students who register for the conference receive free admission to the Show!

3. Green Jobs Forum

A must-visit for both employers and employees looking to green up their business or career. The Canadian job market is full of rapidly expanding and evolving green career prospects and these expert panels present a great opportunity to learn something new about them. Be sure not to miss them!

4. The Good Eats Market

Time for a little refreshment! Visit Fiesta Farms, sample and stock up on sustainable food from some of Ontario's best farmers and food processors, and learn how to incorporate local, sustainable food into your daily life.

5. The Beer Experience

Now there's something for beer lovers! The Beer Experience will be providing samples from some local brewers. Are you aware of the fact that an average Canadian consumes 77.2 litres of beer per year? Environmentally unfriendly production, shipping, and cold storage go hand in hand with such high volume consumption. Drinking locally brewed beer, however, can reduce your carbon footprint. How? Come and ask the brewers yourself!

This is all the information about the show for now. Stay tuned, though, as we'll be bringing you new information concerning the line-ups as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, you can visit the event's official website for more details.
