We are gearing up for our Green Jobs Forum in DC and have lots of new content for you to digest in this edition of our newsletter!
In reading the news, we are hearing about the heatwaves in Europe this summer and recently experienced record heat in the Washington DC region. Our scientists are telling about us about the need to make transformative shifts to a greener economy. This will entail workforce development in many fields involving clean energy, including alternative fuels and the reduction of plastic waste in our oceans, along with ways to create more equitable economic prosperity in our communities. At Leaders in Energy, we attract people who are seeking to work in these fields and make an impact.
Our Green Jobs Forum is coming up on August 22nd and I hope you can join us. This is one of our most popular events. Our speakers will be addressing green job developments in the region. We will also have a panel of Leaders in Energy members who have recently landed or created green jobs who will share their tips on finding these jobs. Learn more on our

I presented on the Circular Economy at the
conference on July 18th at the University of Virginia Darden Business School. Examples of companies in our region include Devoured, C2 Management, Optoro, and Local Motors. See our blog article
which reported on our technical tour to visit the C2 Management recycling facility last year. My presentation is available here
