The “go green” movement is for people of all ages and children and teens are getting in on the action. A few weeks ago, Riya Patel and Neel Desai interviewed Van Jones for the South Burlington Network News (SBNN).

Jones discusses green jobs as the solution to the environmental and economic crises, explained his position as the special advisor for green jobs at the White House, the funding set aside for green jobs training and much more.  

The interview was conducted during the Vermont Business and Industry Expo, which was held last month in Burlington.
