EDF Climate Corps to exhibit at the 2013 Net Impact Conference and host Cocktail Reception
This week, EDF Climate Corps heads to Silicon Valley, California to attend the 2013 Net Impact Conference (Net Impact). An inspirational three-day event, Net Impact provides networking, employment and professional development opportunities to students and professionals aspiring to change the workplace and the world.
Themed “Change Starts Here,” Net Impact seeks to create a cultural forum where new innovations and conversations create a pathway for positive systemic change. This is a value that EDF Climate Corps is committed to fostering as we continue to work with tomorrow’s leaders (our fellows) to promote the advancement of energy management and sustainability. So, it’s a no-brainer that we’ve once again decided to head to Net Impact where we are bound to meet extraordinary people with the passion, skills and expertise to build the case for energy management solutions that lead us to a low-carbon economy.
My EDF Climate Corps team (Kelly Jones, Elena Kocherovsky and Serena Mau) and I will be hosting an exhibit booth from 10am to 4pm on Friday the 25th. Please stop by to learn about our summer fellowship program and how you can help EDF Climate Corps’ network of host organizations save energy and money.
For those who stay late, please join us for our 3rd Annual Net Impact Cocktail Reception from 7pm to 9pm at Il Fornaio in the Sainte Claire Hotel. During the reception, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy complimentary wine and appetizers, meet EDF staff and hear how organizations like Apple, Google, General Motors, REI, AT&T, the City of Boston and Howard University have hired EDF fellows to propel forward their energy management efforts.
We strongly encourage those interested in attending to RSVP due to limited space at our venue.
I look forward to seeing you at the event!
