This is a wide-ranging discussion of the green movement today.  Greg Wendt is founder of the Green Economy Think Tank which convenes sustainability leaders to catalyze ideas into action to grow the green economy through forums, events and conferences.

With increasing concern about the economy, environmental degradation, public health and gridlock in civic leadership, there is a great need for new ways to make change happen. Communities and Cities all over the world must create innovative solutions to economic development which creates jobs for their residents, while maintaining quality of life with cleaner, healthier and safer business practices. To meet these challenges, a new type of leadership is emerging which cultivates the resources and authority to convene and continue the dialogues for creating shared visions, outcomes and shared success.
