Later this week I’ll be attending the Good Jobs, Green Jobs Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with Karin Marcus, the Green Career Central’s Green Niche Coach.
Blue Green Alliance, a strategic partnership between the United Steelworkers and the Sierra Club, is coordinating this conference to bring together a variety of stakeholders including: local, state and federal policy makers; labor; business; the environment and public health; economic and workforce development specialists; investors; and scientists and technology experts.
The goal of the conference is to help jump-start a nationwide green economic renaissance by finding a way to blend environmental solutions with business solutions. The hope is to:
- Revitalize the manufacturing sector
- Drive green building
- Promote safer chemicals
- Realize the economic benefits of global warming solutions
I’ll be blogging while I’m there…I look forward to sharing what I learn.
