Industry presentations will consist of panels of 2 industry representatives each, with 15-20 minutes of presentation time per panelist and 5-10 minutes of Q&A following each panel presentation. Each panel would be repeated twice, in consecutive time slots, on either the 10th or the 11th.

We encourage presentations that:

1. Relate directly to one of the above Green Economy topics.

2. Provide an overview of a segment of one of the above aspects of the Green Economy in terms of impact on individuals, businesses and governments and in the context of the larger state and national economy

3. Describe within that context some of the available and expected products and/or services in the zone

4. Give participants some sense of what to expect from that zone in a range of 5, 10, 15 or 20 years.

5. Help teachers understand what their students, both as future consumers and as future workforce, should know about that zone in order to support a smoother transition to a Green Economy and to help those students plan and prepare for their own future careers and lifestyles.
