Pennsylvania Green Economy Forum

Posted by on January 26, 2009

On Thursday February 5th at 7 PM at West Chester University, PennEnvironment is joining other local environmental groups to host a forum on green jobs, the federal economic stimulus package and our economy. Get the most up to date information about how the pending economic stimulus package can create green jobs in Pennsylvania and protect our environment. We will be joined by former Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Kathleen McGinty and other experts.

WHAT: Pennsylvania Green Economy Forum
WHEN: Thursday February 5th, 7-9 PM
WHERE: Sykes Student Union- Ballroom
West Chester University
110 W. Rosedale Ave.
West Chester, PA 19383

We are co-hosting the forum with other local and national environmental groups to show concerned Pennsylvanians how we can fight global warming while forging a clean energy economy. This includes efforts to use the federal economic stimulus package to fund “ready to go” clean energy and public transit projects, which will significantly reduce global warming pollution and create jobs. We will also discuss other local, state, and federal opportunities to boost clean energy.

Former DEP Secretary Kathleen McGinty will speak about her work on these initiatives, including her current work at Element LLC, a private equity firm investing in clean technology companies. Ms. McGinty’s opening remarks will be followed by a panel discussion with local leaders from the environmental, labor, and business communities.
