How We Are Different
Our program is unique from other “green” conferences because we focus on education through classroom lecture, participant interaction, and hands-on activity.
We are proud to draw upon one of the world’s leading climate research institutions (Scripps) along side a rapidly growing business school (Rady) with strong ties to a community on the cutting edge of the cleantech sector (San Diego).
“For me it was eye-opening on more than a few levels. The impact for me was profound and the processing of this new knowledge will be ongoing for some time.”
“All of those in corporate and government decision-making positions would have benefited from attending this well-run conference focusing on one of the two most important phenomena of our time.”
“I hope it’s the first of many and I suspect it will become a hard ticket to get.”
