Posted on the 02 September 2011 by 2ndgreenrevolution @2ndgreenrev

September 2011 Clean Energy and Sustainability EventsThis month the calendar is chock full of events both stateside and abroad. A number of conferences center on smart grid technologies. There are also a few Public Health conferences on the agenda, one in London and the other in Brisbane, Australia which asks the question “Is Public Health Sustainable?” As with just about every month, numerous events are taking place in England and India. In addition, a multitude of conferences can be found here in the United States.

On occasion there are events in places that hold a special memory. Two of those (Salzburg, Austria and the picturesque town of Bled in neighboring Slovenia) are listed below. While the conference in Bled is only tangentially related to sustainability, the town is amongst the most memorable. Also, the Clean Energy Roundtable is a follow up to an event attended last fall by 2nd Green Revolution.
