Worldwide Webcast Channels
Green Technology events are designed to be forums for the policies, practices and technological innovations that are keeping California at the leading edge of environmental preservation. Each serves a specific community of interest, from K-12 schools and community colleges to state and local government.
Not every member of these communities of interest is able to attend each Green Technology Summit. In order to make content from the Summits available to as many people as possible – and to enable those who did attend to revisit presentations – Green Technology is partnering with Green Street Scene to develop worldwide webcast channels for each event.
Work on these channels will be ongoing all year long, with new content and features – so visit regularly and look for notices in Green Technology magazine or on the individual Summit pages.
Four channels have already been launched. Here’s an overview of what you can expect to find at each one!
Green California Community Colleges Summit
The 2009 Summit captured the excitement that is running through a system that is not only setting new standards for sustainable facilities, but is also playing a key role in training the workforce for the emerging green economy. View general session presentations David Crane, special advisor to the Governor on jobs and economic development, Apollo Alliance president Jerome Ringo, commissioner Timothy A. Simon of the California Public Utilities Commission and Pasadena City College interim president Dr. Lisa Sugimoto - and much more. The channel also includes selected concurrent session presentations, interviews with industry leaders and experts, and profiles (including interviews) with Summit sponsors. Click here.
Green California Schools Summit
An increasing number of California schools are discovering that green programs not only create a better environment for students and teachers – they can create significant savings and new funding opportunities. View keynote speakers Alex Loorz, founder of Kids vs Global Warming and engineer and sustainability expert Bharat Patel. Interviews include state architect David Thorman and secretary of education Glen Thomas, along with corporate leaders and advisory board members.

Global Climate Summit 2
As noted above, the Green Solutions Showcase was developed in association with Governors’ Global Climate Summit 2. This landmark international event was convened to deepen and broaden cooperative efforts by subnational governments to implement strategies that can immediately grow a green economy, increase the use of sustainable clean energy, reduce dependence on oil and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This rich archive of the event includes presentations by Thomas Friedman, Governor Schwarzenegger, EPA adminstrator Lisa Jackson, and many more – as well as coverage of Summit sessions and interviews with global climate leaders. The Green Solutions Showcase is also included in this channel. Click here.
