  • Our members hail from Washington DC, other parts of the United States, and many other countries around the world.

What We Do for Our Members and the “Greater Good”/World:

  • Serve as a conduit for aspiring leaders and interested professionals to connect with leaders, companies, and other venues that can help them to gain the requisite professional development and experience to contribute and transition to livelihoods that are restorative and regenerative for the planet rather than extractive and destructive (e,g,, Green Jobs event where members who had found green jobs via our group provide advice and tips to others seeking employment and green careers);
  • Utilize on-line platforms and in-person meeting venues to help connect members on green job, business, research, and project opportunities, e.g., website, LinkedIn group, Google Hangout conversations to connect other leaders from across the globe;
  • Provide forums for leaders in clean energy and sustainability to be heard by those aspiring to make similar impacts;
  • Generate recaps of our education events, discuss developments in technology and related policies in this arena, provide thought leadership articles; and
  • Conduct professional and educational networking events in addition to workshops involving, e.g., hands-on/real world.  We have conducted several workshops on the Circular Economy including one at the  Alexandria Renew wastewater treatment plant and most recently at the University of District of Columbia (September 2017) to develop an Action Framework for the Circular Economy in the Washington DC region in addition to our ongoing Circular Economy Working Group which meets every fourth Wednesday of the month.  Learn more here.
