The forum is focused on identifying the bridges and barriers to economic and job growth in our local green economy. The greater Knoxville area is the second most rapidly growing green economy in the nation. We are seeking to build long-term collaborative partnerships with local leaders in business, the community, and government to ensure our continuing growth and leadership in this sector.
The forum is an all day event, scheduled for March 1st in the Haslam Business Building, located on UT campus.
