A look at the speaker list for the 2009 Denver Green Festival shows that 154 speaker bios are online. A few of the keynote presenters listed are Tom DeWolf, Mike Farrell and Amy Goodman. These three, and the others, will be presenting on a variety of topics spread out across four different rooms during both conference days.
This conference is designed for consumers, businesses, eco-professionals, families and more. A few of the business-specific offerings include a presentation on the green economy, a look at how to green your business in the current economy, and a session on organic farming. Farming has been touted as one of the top ten green jobs for the next decade and conferences like this are a great way to learn more about eco-friendly farming.
If you’re interested in attending the 2009 Denver Green Festival, registration is only $15 and children aged 18 and under are free.
