If you believe what Van Jones says in his book, The Green Collar Economy, the solution to a sustainable workforce and planet can be solved by refocusing the job market to green collar jobs like solar panel installation. With the meltdown of Wall Street and rampant unemployment, most Americans are looking for answers on how our country is going to survive these next few years.
Bridgeport, Connecticut is taking the lead on Van Jones' advice.
With the B-Green 2020 Initiative, it's embarking on a plan to recreate itself as a model for a safe, profitable, clean and green city.
Bridgeport has the opportunity to be the new model of sustainability.
By working towards this goal, they offer hope for the state of CT, and beyond.
