Coming Up: Sustainable Industries Economic Forum with Paul Hawken


If you haven’t heard Paul Hawken speak lately, and you happen to be in the Bay Area this week, now is a good time to put it on your to-do list.

Our friends at Sustainable Industries are putting together another phenomenal breakfast forum on Thursday the 19th at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco. It’s a $75 event, and having been to the last one I can tell you it’s more than worth it for the speeches as well as the panel that follows. In addition to the legendary Paul Hawken, Colin Wiel will moderate a panel featuring Lisa Michelle Galley of Galley Eco Capital, Phil Williams from Webcor, Matt Cheney from Renewable Ventures, and Peter Rumsey of Rumsey Engineers. Register online here.

If you’re not in the Bay Area, consider some other upcoming locations here. Or stay tuned to 3p for a write-up later in the week.
