EcoTuesday Turns 2, Green Networking Continues to Boom
Julia Levitt, 16 Feb 09


Happy birthday to EcoTuesday! The San Francisco-born networking and learning event is celebrating its 2-year anniversary this month. The structured but social events bring green business leaders together on the fourth Tuesday of every month, in seven cities across the U.S. Congrats to EcoTuesday founders Nikki Pava and Oren Jaffe on their steadily growing national network!

We believe that building sustainable cities will require visionary leadership from all sectors working together, from government to business to individual citizens. So it's great to see the interest continue to grow around meetups that foster cross-pollination of the best ideas out there. Others at the head of the green networking class are GreenDrinks, an informal local green-professional hub hosted monthly in cities around the world, and USGBC's Emerging Green Builders (EGB), a group of students and young professionals dedicated to shaping the future of green building. As Alex has written before,every network needs its epicenters.

We'd love to shed some light on other eco-events that are drawing a Worldchanging audience. If there's one you recommend in your own city, please let us know in the comments.
