Now in its sixth year, the Good Jobs, Green Jobs Conference returns to Washington, D.C., April 16-18, 2013.
Climate change - and the jobs that can be created as we work to address its worst consequences - must be moved to the top of the national debate. Th 2013 Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference will bring labor union members, environmentalists, business owners, community leaders and elected officials from across the country for one of the country's largest discussions on how to build a cleaner, more efficient economy.
This year's theme is Let's Get to Work: Climate Change, Infrastructure and Innovation. The Conference focuses on:
- how to grow the clean economy to scale,
- the role of strategic partnerships between public and private sectors,
- how regulations protect us while creating new markets;
- and how people in every part of the U.S. are working collaboratively for social, economic and environmental justice, while building an economy with good jobs.
