The term "Green Jobs" is everywhere these days. During the presidential election, the stimulus debate and the budget discussions, "Green Jobs" kept popping up.
Many of our members have expressed interest in pursuing a green job, but there is a lot of confusion about what this term really means. Who is qualified for a green job? What kind of work would you do? How much do they pay? Where do I find them?
To help beginners get answers to their questions about green jobs, CarbonfreeDC is hosting "An Introduction to Green Jobs" on June 22nd at 6:30pm at Ebenezers Coffeehouse (201 F St. NE) on Capitol Hill.
Anca Novacovici, founder of Eco-Coach and a green jobs expert, will give a presentation and answer your questions about green jobs. Anca has literally written the book on green jobs and is working with Washington businesses to develop a green job training program in DC.About the Presenter:
