I spent some time making spreadsheets – glorious, glorious spreadsheets – on the green initiative funding in the stimulus bill this morning. Some of the numbers on green stimulus spending floating around on the webernets turn out to be wrong – can you imagine? More on that later though – today I’m talking about the Green Collar Jobs Summit coming up on March 27th at Kennedy-King College here in Chicago.

I got the details from the Summit organizer, Paige Finnegan of the Local Economic and Employment Development Council, this afternoon. This Summit is not to be missed if you are interested in any of the following:

  • Getting a better understanding of the green collar job system in Chicago today,
  • Understanding the role of government and the stimulus in that system, and
  • Hearing hot off the presses research on the green job and green job training scene in Chicago

Seriously – who isn’t interested in these things? Oh wait, no one in your social circle? Well, as an added bonus, when you come to this event you’re going to meet 300+ other people who actually are interested in these issues – and with a breakfast and a reception included it should be pretty easy to chat them up.

Panelists of note include but are not limited to:

As the Agenda firms up we can expect more interesting people to be added in. For more details about the day, check out the draft agenda for the summit. You can register here. I’m all in, myself.
