6th Annual Green Jobs Forum: Careers for the Low-Carbon, Circular Economy

Concerned about the critical state of climate change and the urgent need to shift our economy to one that is more low-carbon and less wasteful?   Learn about what’s happening to grow the green economy in the national capital area (e.g., Maryland Clean Jobs Act creating solar and wind jobs, and more)!  Hear about the first city in the US (Charlotte, NC) to have a circular economy plan!  Obtain tips and advice from those who have landed or created green jobs at IFC, the World Bank, VEIC, and International Fund for Animal Welfare. Learn from those creating jobs to reduce food and plastic waste.  Meet exhibitors who are hiring, providing training in green/clean tech and offering educational credentials, and career assistance.

This event is for people interested in green jobs and careers, those who want to use their careers to “be the difference,” or transform their existing work to be more green-centric, etc.  This special event will serve job hunters, those working in cleantech/greentech, and green-learners/aspirers equally well!

The Green Jobs Forum is Leaders in Energy’s annual review of trends in recruiting, hiring, and career advancement in clean energy and sustainability occupations. This is one of our most popular annual events.  Before the forum, we are also offering several Green Career and networking workshops during the day!
