Marissa Feinberg, co founder and executive director, speaks to the future of Green Leaders Global.
Our group has always operated locally, but has been focused on what's happening globally. Â We have a wonderful foundation of leaders in the five boroughs of New York City. Â And this year, we will expand our leader network to other cities around the world. Â We also have a new initiative called FestivalEco that will welcome our global members to New York in 2010. Â The concept involves the intersection of where exhibition meets conference and gala meets performance. Â A celebration circus for global good!
Movers and Shakers Make Up Membership
Feinberg notes that leaders often work to the point where they become isolated. As a group, individuals can accomplish their goals collectively. Notable members include Paulette Cole, CEO of ABC Carpet & Home, Mary Cleaver of The Cleaver Co., Debera Johnson, director of sustainability at the Pratt Institute, Marc Alt, president of Marc Alt + Partners, Diane Hatz, founder of Sustainable Table, Davide Berruto, CEO of Environment Furniture, and many other innovators in the green movement.
