As a community committed to thought leadership and the pursuit of it, I want to take a short moment to mention Opportunity Green 2010, the world's leading cross-industry, sustainable business conference. Ranked as the #1 Green Conference by Google, Opportunity Green is at the nexus of the connections and collaborations that are vital to propelling new business models in a green economy.
This yearâ€™s conference will be held at LA Center Studios from September 22 â€“ 24, 2010. Gensler and BMW Designworks USA have joined with the conference to curate interactive pavilions designed to engage and inspire new thought leadership.
As you enter the conference complex, one of the first things you will see is a massive, fully up-cycled, â€œtreeâ€ installation. The interconnected sculpture will be made up of re-purposed LED panels from iOS Light, reclaimed wood, and recycled cardboard tubing. Attendees can create the "leaves" by bringing business cards and inserting them individually into the â€œbranches.â€
While in attendance, speakers from Patagonia, The Coca-Cola Company, News Corporation, Siemens, Eastman, BBMG, PG&E, AgraQuest, BrightSource Energy, Mindful Investors, Art Center College of Design, BrightSource Energy, and other companies will be on hand to discuss the best practices and latest trends.
