Green Travel Summit, Newport Beach, California

In March 2009, Ecological Foundation Director Jake Kheel participated as a speaker at the Green Travel Summit in Newport Beach, California. The Green Travel Summit is the first fully dedicated forum focused on exploring green travel strategies and their impact on business travel and corporate meetings.

Keynote speaker Auden Schendler was a conference highlight. If you haven't picked up his book "Getting Green Done" yet, its a great and insightful read. "We need fewer visionaries and more grunts." And maybe less conferences.....
