How do we grow the economy and still protect the environment? Through a new clean economy that provides good jobs at middle-class wages. Plains Justice is working for that clean economy and is pleased to announce an upcoming event in Cedar Falls, IA.
“Climate Change and Going Green: Where are we in the Cedar Valley?”
Tuesday, May 19, 2009
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Area Education Agency 267, Conference Room A
3712 Cedar Heights Drive
Cedar Falls, Iowa
This League of Women Voters event will present three speakers:
Dr. William Stigliani will give a broad overview of the challenges posed by environmental degradation and resource depletion. Lee Clancey will discuss green jobs, an economic engine of both today and tomorrow. Steve Dust will describe the new green Tech Works project that positions the Cedar Valley to become a bioeconomy hub.
While it’s well known that Iowa is a national leader in creating green jobs that pay good middle-class wages, few realize that the Cedar Valley is poised to become a major player in Iowa’s new clean economy.
