Hundreds of people from the Metro Detroit ‘Green Economy’ attended the EcoWorks 7th Annual Breakfast at the Detroit Yacht Club (DYC) Friday, September 18th. Detroit Free Press Emmy award winning journalist Stephen Henderson served as MC.
The event featured the Sustainable Communities Champions awards ceremony where four people and organizations were singled out for their distinctive contributions to a more sustainable community. Among the four awardees was Jim Newman of Newman Consulting Group LLC.
The keynote speaker was our former Governor, Ms. Jennifer Granholm, who brought the house down with her inspirational presentation. Governor Granholm spoke of the “crisis” during her two terms as Governor and what the prospects for Michigan could be in the next several years based on some choices government, business and the non-profit world will make on clean energy policy and jobs.
