Coverage From Leaders in Energy's Green Jobs Forum
On August 17, UNA-NCA partnered with Leaders in Energy on their annual Green Jobs Forum. This program brought together individuals interested in green industry (renewable energy, energy efficiency, etc.) careers and involvement with those having expertise and/or career opportunities available.  The event had a local to global focus, particularly exploring the DC Metro region, and incorporated Sustainable Development Goal content for SDG # 7, Clean Affordable Energy, and SDG # 8, Decent Work.  There were exhibitors at the event, who were promoting clean energy solutions and related career development. Formal remarks included opening comments from Janine Finnell, Executive Director of Leaders in Energy, and from Ken Lemberg, UNA-NCA Sustainable Development Committee member. Other UNA-NCA members were in attendance as well. The formal presentations incorporated two panels: one with industry experts, helping set the stage for background industry information, and the other with practitioners who managed to get green related jobs in the recent past. The participant audience was engaged and there was helpful social networkng during the event.GREEN2GREEN1
