Advancing CA's Climate Leadership: A discussion of critical climate policies currently at play (California Webinar) TeleSalonMonday, July 25, 2016 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Pacific)
From the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32) to the Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act of 2015 (SB 350), California’s climate policies have made the state a global leader in addressing climate change. Before the California legislature concludes its 2016 legislative session on August 31st, there are several crucial climate policies being considered; the outcome of these votes will shape the future of the state’s climate program, either propelling California forward or derailing the state’s significant progress that paves the way for national action. Join this E2 and Ceres webinar to learn more about these policies and programs, the backroom politics that are shaping the conversation and influencing the outcomes, and how your company can support the passage of these bills and California’s continued climate leadership. Contact Mary Solecki with any questions.

Partner Event: Growing Green - Colorado's Clean Energy Workforce SpecialEventTuesday, August 2, 2016 (5:30 PM - 7:30 PM Mountain)
Join us for an event sponsored by The Alliance Center for Sustainable Colorado and The CU Wirth Chair In Sustainable Development, and in collaboration with Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2).
Even in a state that gets approximately 60 percent of its energy from coal, Colorado is one of many states with an impressive - and growing - clean energy workforce. Jobs in renewable energy are among the fastest growing in the U.S. The rumors to the contrary
simply aren’t true: the national transition to a clean energy system is creating jobs to the tune of millions. Some studies estimate there were 1.2 million clean energy jobs created in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2015 alone. In addition to creating and sustaining clean
energy jobs, this massive paradigm shift needs to also focus on job transition and skills training in Colorado’s extraction dependent communities.
What is the bridge between the current energy workforce and the one of the future?
What is the landscape of clean energy jobs here in Colorado?
As the state’s population booms what is the impact on clean energy employment?
Join local experts to explore the state and future of the clean energy workforce in Colorado. E2's Executive Director, Bob Keefe will moderate this thoughtful discussion.
