Good Jobs, Green Jobs Conference Coming Soon
Now in its fourth year, the 2011 Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference — February 8-10 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. — is the nation's leading forum on ideas and strategies to build a green economy that creates jobs, reduces global warming, and preserves America's economic and environmental security. The 2011 Conference will bring together thousands of labor, environmental, business, elected, and community leaders.
This year's Conference highlights successful state and local initiatives, emerging and growing green sectors, successful work development programs, and model partnerships with government. Together they demonstrate the breadth of the coalition working to build a green economy and to create the good jobs that come along with it.
The 2010 Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference drew 3,000 people. Keynote and plenary speakers included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Energy Secretary Dr. Steven Chu, Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis, Massachusetts Senator John Kerry and Governors Edward G. Rendell of Pennsylvania and Bill Ritter of Colorado. Speakers this year include Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, and White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley.
