Unfortunately, I live about 2,000 miles from the Good Jobs, Green Jobs conference so was unable to attend. Thankfully, many of the 3,000 or so attendees have posted articles on their blogs praising the conference. For those of you out there like me, wishing you could have gone and now left wondering how it went, here are a few articles to help you get your green jobs conference fix.
FIRED UP from Good Jobs, Green Jobs by Pauli Ojea at Green for All shares the excitement that he has after returning from the Washington, D.C. event.
Pamela at The Pink Standard shares the conference highlights in her post, Defining the Movement at Good Jobs, Green Jobs 09.
Alec Dubro at The Progressive questions if there was a bit of green washing going on in his personal summary of the 2009 conference.
The first part of Van Jones' address at the conference is embedded above. Don't forget to check out part 2 and part 3. If you are not motivated about green jobs yet then you certainly will be after listening to Jones.
