EPA's Jackson to Speak at 2011 Green Jobs Conference

The 2011 Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference — February 8-10 at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C. — will bring together thousands of union members, environmentalists, community and business leaders from all over the country to share ideas and strategies to build a sustainable economy that creates good jobs and protects our environment for future generations.

And now, an exciting speaker has been added to the agenda.

EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, right, will speak at the morning plenary on Tuesday, February 8 [her birthday--birthday of our Center president too]. In addition, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood will speak Wednesday morning, February 9, followed by a discussion on sustainable communities, moderated by WAMU's Kojo Nnamdi and featuring U.S. Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota.

Also, don’t forget about the extensive and informative workshops available during the Conference. In The Global Clean Energy Race: Policy Matters, listen and participate as leaders in the renewable energy and energy efficiency industries talk about the Pew Environmental Group’s latest report projecting global clean energy investments.
