Green North Eco-Conference 2008 (Mar 18 & 19)    Tue Mar 18 to Wed Mar 19, 2008, Thunder Bay, ON

For two days in March, international sustainability experts will gather at Confederation College in Thunder Bay to celebrate Greening Northern Ontario and to host the region’s inaugural "Green North Eco-Conference 2008". The Conference will focus on 3 main topics including:

1. Developing Northern Ontario's Alternative Energy Sector.
2. Greening Northern Municipalities.
3. Greening Northern Business.

The Conference will embrace efforts and green practices already under way in the north and demonstrate how commitment toward the green economy will pay off in the long run through factors like job creation, improved marketability, energy cost savings and attracting new industry. The Conference is the first step toward a more sustainable economy for Northern Ontario. Beginning with a dialogue involving leading alternative energy experts, city mayors, municipal managers and economic development practitioners together with businesses from across the North, the Green North Eco-Conference 2008 will emphasize the creation of a healthy and inclusive community that supports new economic opportunities and a high quality of life with minimal impact to the environment.
