For seven years, the Good Jobs, Green Jobs Conference has attracted thousands of people from across the country—business, community and elected leaders, union members, environmentalists and opinion makers—for the leading forum for sharing ideas and strategies on how to build a green economy that creates good jobs and preserves our economic and environmental security.

This year’s Conference is focused on repairing the systems Americans rely on every day, whether getting us back and forth to work, supplying our power, keeping us safe from storms and floods, communicating with police and fire during emergencies, or ensuring the institutions where our children learn are safe and healthy. It's time to repair these systems today to create quality, family-sustaining jobs, to address the threat of climate change, and to ensure the health and safety of our workplaces and our communities.

The Conference will also feature numerous workshops focused on the creation of good jobs in communities across the country and the goals of environmental and economic sustainability. Workshops range from a focus on repairing America's infrastructure, clean energy manufacturing and supply chain development to clean transportation alternatives, and from youth and environmental education to green schools and energy efficiency.
