White House Visit in Pictures

When Beth Galante, director of our New Orleans office, was at the White House to receive the "Champions of Change" honor for her Global Green work in the Gulf, she was able to post observations on Twitter and snap a couple of iPhone photos from the Gulf Coast Sustainable Economics Roundtable. It was a good networking opportunity, too; Beth had the chance to speak with Navy Secretary Mabus about the commitment to have 50% alternative energy by 2020 -- and the desire to see Gulf Coast states become leaders in alternative energy. Even better: she scheduled follow-up meetings with participants at the roundtable to make sure the talk turns into action -- and tragedy continues to turn into triumph on the Gulf Coast.
