Worldchanging Tour: Chicago

chitown.jpg In the Windy City WC is going aquatic with a big event at the Shedd Aquarium on November 12. We can't wait for this fantastic evening, with opportunities to hear about some breakthrough innovations (including appearances by a couple amazing special guests), meet and mingle with other folks out there trying to make the world a better place, and generally celebrate the whole worldchanging community.

November 12th: CHICAGO - Event at the Shedd Aquarium
1200 South Lake Shore Drive

RSVP: WorldchangingChi [at]

Also, because part of our goal in each city we visit is to shine a spotlight on local people and groups doing worldchanging work (promoting sustainability and social change, delivering innovation and future-forward solutions), we're looking for your recommendations about who to spotlight, as well.

Not in Chicago, but two-and-a-half hours away in Madison, WI, TomoTherapy Inc. develops a radiation therapy ssystem that is years ahead of any other industry solution.

The TomoTherapy Hi-Art System allows radiation to be delivered more precisely, via daily imaging, and more accurately, via 360-degree delivery, than ever before.

Worth checking out, indeed.

Can't wait to see you here in Chicago!

My organization is worldchanging. I'm working for the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance. We promote energy efficiency/conservation issues in a 9-state midwest region. We run the regional version of the EPA's Change A Light, Change the World program, encouraging the use of CFL bulbs. We also run a Building Operator Certification program, teaching building operators how to be efficient. I work on the policy end, trying to encourage states to adopt best-practice building codes, efficiency standards, and energy efficiency funding programs.

What started five or so years ago as a one-woman show run by our current president/CEO in the back room of somebody else's office now has a staff of 12 and our own Michigan Ave. address.

This is the first job I've ever had that feels worldchanging to me.
