Gateways to the Green Economy
The pressing need for new energy sources, efficient energy and water management and resource conservation are creating new industries, and providing community colleges with unprecedented opportunities to enrich the communities they serve and to play a role in building a better future for California.
California has an unequalled combination of forward-thinking policy, technological know-how and public support for sustainability. It is the world’s eighth-largest economy, larger than Russia.
To remain an international leader in green innovation and economic growth, California needs workers with the skills that green jobs require. Community colleges in the state, which train the great majority of students pursuing higher education, are responding to this need, creating curriculum and building facilities that reflect sustainable concepts in application.
The Expo is your chance to discover the latest green innovations. Hundreds of companies will be on hand, with products and services ranging from energy efficient lighting to curriculum resources.
Keynotes and Expo are FREE to registered attendees!
