Last month at the Clinton Global Initiative (covered by Climate Progress), Van Jones, Executive Director of the Ella Baker Center in Oakland, California, announced the initiative Green for All. The goal of the initative is to secure “job training for 250,000 workers from urban communities for the emerging green job market.”
Today Van Jones is featured in Thomas Friedman’s NYT op-ed column: The Green-Collar Solution.
And if you’re in D.C. and interested in the issue of green jobs and the socio-political aspect of building a low-carbon economy, I’d highly recommend checking out the event at the Center for American Progress on Monday. – Go here to view details and the invitation.
We will post videos from the event when they become available.
