2010 Good Jobs Green Jobs Conference

The 2010 Good Jobs Green Jobs Conference will be held from May 4 – 6, 2010 in Washington, D.C.

The 2009 Good Jobs Green Jobs Conference brought in over 3,000 attendees. From politicians to advocates and students to green business owners, everyone joined forces to help promote the importance of good green jobs and a green collar economy. The 2010 conference is just around the corner, May 4-6, and conference organizers are expecting more than 4,000 attendees this year.

As would be expected, the conference schedule is chock full of exciting workshops. In looking through the schedule a few piqued my interest including a discussion on Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety which will discuss green chemistry’s benefit to both the environment and occupational health and safety concerns. Green chemistry is something that I’m particularly interested in as it has the potential to make a huge impact on the environment due to its widespread use.
