Green Jobs: ABQ Green Solutions Fair 9/27/08

The ABQ Green Solutions Fair, part of national day of action

From NMYO: New Mexico Youth Organized (NMYO), in collaboration with Green for All and several other national climate change campaigns, NMYO is pushing for green jobs in New Mexico as a pathway out of poverty for young people and as a solution to global warming. NMYO and 1Sky New Mexico, along with many other environmental and community groups, will be hosting a solutions fair that will highlight energy saving solutions, environmental education, community gardening, green businesses, and the Albuquerque Green Job initiative.

“This is going to be a fun, community event that will highlight the ongoing work towards cleaning up our environment, building pathways out of poverty via green jobs, and uplifting our environment and our people.” NMYO Organizer – Juan Reynosa

We will also have a couple people on hand to help anyone who needs minor bike repairs done to their bicycle. Subject matter will range from protecting the wilderness, to green jobs, to bio-diesel, to sustainable transportation, and everything in between.

“We have a golden opportunity to invest in the economies of the future that provide jobs locally and at the same time save the environment.” said Juan Reynosa, organizer with NMYO. “NMYO’s Greencollar Jobs campaign will bring desperately needed jobs to New Mexico and help move our antiquated energy policy to one built on a clean, renewable economy.”

For more information, contact Juan Reynosa, 1Sky Organizer at (505) 242-4036, joowan1@gmail.com.

New Mexico Youth Organized (NMYO) is a community based organization devoted to improving the lives of working families in our state. Through engaging 17-34 year olds in the civic process our mission is to inspire the next generation of leaders in New Mexico.

As a JOB fair can I assume there will be employers there taking resumes and hiring?
Or is this just a feel good party?
