No matter how ‘old’ you are there is something for you to take advantage of to further your own education on the topics of ‘green’ and ‘sustainable.’ Just look at our Events Page, which continues to swell with events and reminds us just how much is going on in the Pioneer Valley. Green is NOW!
As far as events that are not to be missed; the 7th Annual Sustainability Summit which is happening tomorrow 9/24 at GCC.
Check out the 2011 Clean Energy Connections Conference happening 11/2/2011 in Springfield, MA.
It is also great to see the local community colleges, colleges, and universities building their offerings in sustainability. Interested is out there? Earththrives.com is building a resource to share educational opportunities in the Pioneer Valley on our Education Offerings page. Announcements we receive from local groups will be included. Please let us know if you hear of courses related to green or sustainability as it would be great to have this be a comprehensive offering.
And, of course, here’s some of the Latest that you probably don’t want to miss:
