March 2012 Clean Energy and Sustainability EventsNumerous events are slated for the United Kingdom this month, including a slew in London. With so many great conferences on U.S. soil though, we highlight a number of those taking place domestically this month. These include a few in Washington D.C., one of which focuses on the military and alternative energy. Check out our full calendar for more information on these other exciting events.

The domestic conferences cover a range of topics from finance to education. In addition, we’ve been compiling these long enough that there are several repeat events showing up. For instance, the Sustainability in Packaging 2012 in Orlando, Florida and Green Chemistry 2012 in Cologne, Germany are standbys from years past.

Let us know of any conferences, events, or festivals in your area. We will gladly add them to our green events calendar. Please send us an email with the event’s name, date, location, description, and website.

Description: The time to integrate sustainability into the community college is now.

This conference will help faculty, administrators, and staff from across the nation focus on what sustainability means for the community college of the 21st Century. Community colleges are different from other higher education institutions and this conference will celebrate those differences and examine the challenges they bring. Mark Mykleby, Ashok Gupta, Debra Rowe, and David Orr will also issue new imperatives for action on the grounds of national security, policy innovation, workforce development, and ecological health.
