from Worldchanging ally Jacob Wheeler
Please join us this weekend for the first annual Chicago Green Festival, April 21 and 22, at the McCormick Place on Chicago’s south loop. This is the Windy City’s first Green Festival, following on the heels of San Francisco, which rolls out its green carpet for the sixth time on November 9-11, and Washington D.C., which will hold its second annual Green Festival on October 6-7.
Worldchanging will be sharing a booth with the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, one of the green MBA programs in North America. We still need volunteers to gather email addresses, show off our book, and spread the Worldchanging word. We still have a limited number of free passes to give out to volunteers. If you’re interested, please e-mail leif [at] worldchanging [dot] com.
The Green Festival will host more than 150 speakers on five different stages: from truth-speakers Amy Goodman (Democracy Now!) and Greg Palast (Armed Madhouse) to food revolutionary Frances Moore Lappé and Mayor Richard M. Daley, who wants to make Chicago the nation’s greenest city.
