giving-tuesday-logo-2This year, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, the Illinois Green Economy Network (IGEN) is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Please support our statewide efforts for a sustainable future.

Recent events likely mean an end to national leadership addressing climate change and other environmental issues, as well as federal regulations requiring gradual reduction of carbon emissions. If we are to avoid significant impacts of climate change, it will be up to local communities to lead the way in emission reductions and resiliency planning.

Illinois community colleges are at the heart of local communities across the state, serving as the nexus for business, community organizations, and government.

IGEN’s unique statewide approach leverages the power of a sustainability network with the deep community connections of individual colleges to expand deployment of clean energy technologies, increase employment opportunities, improve environmental and human health, foster community engagement, and accelerate market competitiveness.

Your generous tax-deductible donation will be used to further our efforts across the state, creating career pathways for jobs that help to grow the green economy in Illinois. Donate today!
