The Good Jobs, Green Jobs East Conference was held in Philadelphia on April 3 and 4, 2012.
People from throughout the East — and much of the rest of the country — gathered together to share their stories and hear the stories of others working right now to build a green economy with good jobs.
The first day of the Conference, there were two plenary sessions. The morning session featured Hillary Bright, the BlueGreen Alliance’s Regional Program Manager for Pennsylvania; BlueGreen Alliance Foundation President David Foster; United Steelworkers International Secretary-Treasurer Stan Johnson; Sierra Club President Robin Mann; U.S. Sen. Chris Coons; Philadephia Mayor Michael A. Nutter, and a plenary panel on transportation investment driving good, green jobs. Check out the link of the morning session on YouTube.
