Register today for the Lake Land College Energy Innovation Conference with keynote speaker Ed Begley, Jr.

Are you interested in reducing your energy consumption? Do you want to take steps toward decreasing your carbon footprint for a healthier planet? Or maybe you’re an avid do-it-yourself fan and could use some pointers for your next project? If this is the case, the seventh annual Energy Innovation Conference is for you!

Lake Land College’s annual Energy Innovation Conference is scheduled for Wednesday, March 5, 2014. This event is free and open to the public. 

The conference covers a wide array of topics including geothermal heating, solar and wind energy, technician and job training, sustainable industry information and projections, bio-mass, sustainability and green businesses. Conference topics are designed to meet the interests of contractors, educators, business owners, facility managers and farmers. The conference is free and open to the public.  

 

The keynote speaker for the upcoming conference is actor, director and environmentalist, Ed Begley Jr. Begley is currently one of the hottest speakers on eco-living in America. His theme, Live Simply So That Others Can Simply Live, has been received by standing ovations at over 200 events in just the last four years, with over 40 bookings completed in 2012 and 2013-to-date. His empowering and humorous message on sustainable living includes:

How he began his 42-year eco-journey in 1970, including humorous stories about his first electric car and his first attempt at composting

"Everything I have done for the 'environment' has also been good for my 'pocketbook'"

"Start with the little things - you don't "run" up Mt. Everest!"

The success in California to clean up the smog - it didn't hurt business... the economy thrived!

Global climate change, pollution, dependency on Mid-East oil - these are "challenges" that can be overcome!

Products and services that he has used that work!

"Our planet is an asset with value – let's not treat it like a "going-out-of-business" sale!"
