Green Your Career Path at the 2011 Green Jobs Conference

The Wayne National Forest along with partners from the US Fish & Wildlife Service, Sunday Creek Restoration Project, and Hocking College planted 1,800 American Chestnut trees on a site that was once mined for coal in the late 1960's and early 1970's.

“Green,” is the new black—yes, I know you’ve heard it before–but it’s become increasingly true for more than just our basic lifestyle habits.

From protecting our favorite wildlife critters, to fighting climate change, moving our overall economic infrastructure to be more and more “green” is also a key part of creating a more sustainable future.   

Not sure where to start on such a journey of building a greener career path?  Come to Washington, D.C., and experience the 2011 Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference, where you’ll learn about the environmental progress happening now!

The 2011 Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference, February 8-10 at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, is the leading forum for sharing ideas and strategies on how to build a green economy that creates good jobs, addresses some of the most pressing environmental issues of our day, and secures the nation’s environmental and economic future.

This year’s conference will focus on putting into practice the ideas and strategies that will build a sustainable economy with millions of good, green jobs across the country. The Conference features two days of exciting keynotes, and features more than 100 workshops on a wide range of topics focusing on building a cleaner, greener and more sustainable economy; like Leveling the Playing Field: Trade and the Clean Energy Economy, Reducing Costs and Emissions: Energy Efficiency in the U.S. Manufacturing Sector and Forgotten Communities: Environmental Justice and Building a Green Society.

Read more about these and many more great workshops—there’s a session for everyone, I guarantee it!  (NOTE: Registration is required for the 2011 Conference).

And one more thing! On February 7 there will be a  state-based strategy meeting from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park that you can attend.  For more information about reserving meeting space or for a schedule of meetings, please click here.

Go Register today and book your hotel room for a convenient travel to the conference, and of course, don’t forgot your “green” attire (as black is totally overrated).
