Dispatch from SSC President Jennifer Woofter
There are literally dozens of sustainability and "green" events each year--ranging from the consumer-oriented Green Festival (with 30,000+ attendees) to the SME peer-to-peer networking Green Unconferences (with perhaps a hundred people).
I am often asked which conferences are the best, and since my friend and colleague Ian Fisk just returned from a round of conferences, I thought I'd let his own words give you some insight:
Ian does the conference round every year, gathering judges for the William James Foundation's annual Socially Responsible Business Plan competitions - if you're not already familiar with it, check it out. I've been a reading judge for the last 4 years (and am gearing up to do it again!), and SSC is a sponsor.
Chase Bank has listed the William James Foundation as option in one of their "see how many friends you can get to vote for you" gigs with various cash prizes. So you can support the William James Foundation by voting for them to win $25k with #chasegiving. Please vote for them here!
