July 2011 Clean Energy and Sustainability EventsRecent news out of Germany that the country has decided to forgo nuclear energy in the upcoming years has increased the market for wind farms on the North Sea. Conferences like the offshore wind conference in Bremen, Germany this month will become increasingly important. Another intriguing international event takes place this month at the Green School in Bali, Indonesia.

Additionally there are a few events in San Diego, CA this month. AASHE, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, will lead one event and a group of business executives host a global renewable energy forum. Several regional youth conferences (in Atlanta, Minneapolis, Denver, and San Francisco) organized by Outdoor Nation are taking place during July. Youth conferences and teacher education symposiums reign supreme during the summer. This year, The Sustainability Education Summer Institute in Seattle, Washington, provides educators with an opportunity to “deepen their knowledge of education for sustainability (EfS) and apply it to their schools and programs.”

Lastly, Global Green USA employee and occasional 2nd Green Revolution contributor Matt de la Houssaye, has put together the Commercial Food Waste Conference in New York City. Details can be found below.
