Green Drinks Jobs Forum

Posted by Trish Riley, January 1, 2010

img_ftrd_greendrinksGreen Drinks Gainesville will be hosting a White House Community Jobs Forum at our next meeting, Jan. 6,  6-8-> p.m. at Lux Bar, 211 W. University Ave. in Gainesville.

These Jobs Forums are being held around the country and we’ll provide local feedback for the president to consider. There are six questions about which sectors of the economy are working, expanding, hiring and which aren’t; what are local opportunities for job growth;  what are local obstacles; etc. If this interests you, please come prepared with your comments – or share them with us here online – particularly about green jobs.

Our meeting will be sponsored by Project Nepal, a foundation that provides educational materials to students in Nepal. Edmund and Sargit Kellerman will provide Indian and Malaysian dinner of Murktha and Chana Curry with basmati rice and amazing Malaysian tea for a suggested donation of $7 to $10. Cash bar.

Mr. Kellerman will tell us about Project Nepal, and Steve Nichtenberg of Lux will tell us about his erforts to create a  sustainable business. Afterward, we’ll convene the White House Community Jobs Forum for those who’d like to contribute.

Please plan to attend! For more info: nepal green drinks
