Who we are

Welcome to our community of leaders working to scale and accelerate clean energy and sustainable solutions.  Join our global action network to connect with people in the US and around the world (in over 100 countries) who are passionate about making a difference.  We conduct monthly forums, including workshops, where we convene experts in our focus areas including sustainable communities, green economy, and multigenerational leadership.  We also help our members connect with one another on opportunities related to employment and business partnering.

We are a non-profit 501-c-3 organization.

Sustainable Communities

We are working to create Sustainable Communities by connecting those who want to DEPLOY sustainable solutions with companies and vendors who can PROVIDE those solutions.  We have conducted six annual Clean Energy and Sustainability Extravaganza events at universities in the Washington DC region to bring together university research and innovation with vendors working in clean energy and sustainable solutions.  See the recap articles from our February 29,2020 event at the University of Maryland-College Park.  These events have been conducted with the Association of Energy Engineers National Capital Chapter.

Consolidated Presentations from the Extravaganza including the three panels – CWEEL, University and Business Showcase Panels
