Delta event to focus on renewable energy, sustainability

6/12/2013 at 12:00 a.m.


The Delta Citizens Alliance (DCA) will host its third-annual Delta Green Community Forum on June 28 at the East Arkansas Community College in Forrest City.

The goal of the event, according to DCA, is to provide Delta farmers, community-based organizations, community leaders and residents insight into the development and use of green strategies, products, practices, policies and energy sources that support the achievement of long-term economic goals.

The forum’s keynote speaker will be Sumesh Arora, vice president of Innovate Mississippi and the director of Strategic Biomass Solutions. He also represents Mississippi on the international Governors’ Biofuels Coalition and has helped attract more than $550 million in advanced biofuels projects to the state. There will also be panel presentations on: 
  • Defining Renewable Energy and Green Jobs;
  • Pathways between Policy and Renewable Energy Adaptation;
  • Sustainable Agriculture for Arkansas’ Future;
  • Renewable Technology; and
  • Model Community Projects.
The event is funded, in part, by the Winthrop Rockefeller, alt.Consulting and the Arkansas Wildlife Federation.
