The Reykjavík Green Days is a national event which took place in Reykjavík, Iceland from August 17 to August 21, 2009. A second edition is scheduled to take place the second week of August 2010.
It aims at raising awareness and stimulating citizens, businesses, non-governmental organisations, local authorities and other urban actors to improve the environment's quality by implementing changes in behaviour.

It's considered by the Reykjavík town Council an environmental education initiative that encourages all stakeholders to take steps towards becoming more environmentally responsible.

The initiave has been organized by the SEED Iceland association in collaboration with other minor local institutions. The staff has been made up of people with 9 nationalities[1] and so the event has been a relevant turistic attraction. The most important happening of the 2009 edition was the Reykjavík critical mass, actually the first one in Iceland.[2]
