VCCool teams up with local organizations and businesses to present the Ventura City Council Candidate "GREEN" FORUM at the W�V Theater Gallery.
This historic Forum focuses on green solutions for Ventura. We recognize that the artificial division between Economy and Environment is obsolete.
It's time to come together and support green jobs, sustainable energy, healthy transportation, efficient homes, a resilient local economy, clean beaches, and a future for our kids and their kids.
At the forum, we will hear what ideas and visions the candidates bring to the table.
The forum will start with a beautiful local slide show, music, and refreshments - a celebration of our amazing home. The "Power of Green" forum will follow, with prepared as well as audience questions for local candidates.
6:00 pm - Mingle & Multi-Media
