Video: Can You See a Green-Jobs Future?


Why do we need a green economy? This new video from Green For All answers that question, at least on a musical and emotional level. 

But the organization works to produce more than just really cool videos. It trains leaders in low-income communities to work toward green jobs in their neighborhoods, thereby fighting poverty and pollution at the same time. In addition to this project, Green For All campaigns on a national level, has set up communication between green-job advocates across the country, and recently launched a “Green The Block” campaign in alliance with the Hip Hop Caucus to educate and mobilize communities of color to achieve a stake in the clean-energy economy. Enter catchy optimistic music.
