2011 Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference -- Pew Trust

Date: February 8, 2011 - February 10, 2011

Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel

DC, Washington 20008


Now in its fourth year, the 2011 Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference — February 8-10 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. — is the nation’s leading forum sharing ideas and strategies to build a green economy that creates good jobs, reduces global warming and confronts other environmental problems, and preserves America’s economic and environmental security.

The 2011 Conference — which will bring together thousands of labor, environmental, business, elected and community leaders — is focused putting into practice the ideas and strategies for a new green economy — and creating good green jobs — around the country.

Workshop: Tuesday, February 8, 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

In December of 2010, the Pew Charitable Trusts released a report providing projections of global clean energy investments based on three possible policy scenarios. This report builds on Who’s Winning the Clean Energy Race? Growth, Competition, and Opportunity in the World’s Largest Economies, which was published by Pew in March of 2010. Guided by potential policy scenarios, the new report provides global, regional, and select country-specific investment trends and opportunities in the clean energy economy.

Phyllis Cuttino, Director of Pew’s Clean Energy Program, will briefly outline the global landscape for the clean energy economy, noting that those nations in the lead all have strong policy structures, and moderate a panel discussion on three key policies the United States should consider in order to stay in the global race.
