As you begin to fill your 2014 calendar – if you can be in the nation’s capital in February now is the time to make sure you’ve registered for the Good Jobs, Green Jobs Conference that will be held at the Washington Hilton Hotel on February 10th and 11th. The focus of the 2014 conference is on repairing the systems we all rely on to create good jobs, address the climate crisis, and promote the health and safety of our workplaces and communities.
Green America is proud to serve as a conference convener once again and to speak at a workshop on February 11th on The Role of Business in Repairing America and Creating a New Economy.
Collaborating with our colleagues at the American Sustainable Business Council, EILEEN FISHER, and the South Carolina Small Business Chamber of Commerce we will address the opportunities and obstacles for advancing a new economy agenda. New and powerful voices are emerging within America’s business community that are advocating for policies that support a more just and sustainable economy that can help repair the damage of “business as usual.” You’ll be able to hear from business leaders and organizations focusing on building an economy that works for both people and the planet. The session will highlight organizing and advocacy strategies and innovative approaches to doing business.
Register today – either for the full conference or for a discounted one-day pass!
You’ll be able to hear from Richard Trumka, AFL-CIO; Frances Bienecke, Natural Resources Defense Council; Michael Brune, Sierra Club; Kathleen Rest, Union of Concerned Scientists and many other national and regional leaders whose work and organizations are at the forefront of creating a clean economy that works for all.
I hope to see you there!
