Good Jobs, Green Jobs: A National Green Jobs Conference

Good Jobs, Green Jobs: A National Green Jobs ConferenceLater 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.
