UN Environmental Programme Releases Groundbreaking Report


A new report issued by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) suggests that investing just 2 percent of global GDP in the green economy would cut humanity's environmental footprint in half.


The report, titled "Towards a Green Economy: Pathways to Sustainable Development and Poverty Eradication," outlines ten key sectors of the economy that have the potential to shift global development onto a more sustainable and resource-efficient path.  Although intended as a resource for policymakers, the document offers a wealth of information for ordinary citizens to educate themselves about climate change and sustainable development.

The "Young & Restless:" How San Diego Can Win the Race for America's Top Talent


Equinox Center and the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation (EDC) invite you to join the San Diego region's top business leaders and policy makers for a special event on September 14: "The Young & Restless: Winning the Race for America's Best Talent."


Brace yourselves for a seismic shift in our labor markets. The growth of the U.S. population conceals decline in a pivotal segment: college-educated young adults - tomorrow's knowledge workers and entrepreneurs. As regions compete for these "Young & Restless," they are learning that 25-34 year-olds won't be courted by just any suitor. Place matters.   


What can the San Diego region do to attract and retain this vital future workforce?   


Economist Joe Cortright of CEOs for Cities and Impresa Consulting has the answer.
