Van Jones, special advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, presented a speech to attendees of the 2009 Campus Progress National Conference in Washington, D.C., earlier this month. In his speech, Jones addressed some of today’s hot-button issues including climate change, green jobs and a green collar economy.
Jones was just one of many high-profile speakers during the conference, including former President Clinton, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and John Podesta (president, Center for American Progress).
