We are not just a network of Hubs; we are a community of people like you, working in your own communities to demonstrate that a more sustainable economy is possible. From our online community to in-person retreats and events, learning from and connecting with smart, passionate people working towards the same goal is one of the highest value benefits of being a Green Economy Hub.

Complete a community workshop:

We recognize that certain communities might have some interest in starting a Green Economy Hub but aren’t quite sure who would lead it or if there is sufficient business interest to justify investment in program development. For these communities, we can conduct a community workshop to help gauge local interest and build support for the program.
