Did you know more than twice as many Ohioans work in clean energy as the number of lawyers, web developers, accountants, auditors, and real estate agents combined? Reducing energy waste and generating local electricity through renewables is a powerful way to stimulate economic growth, especially in communities recovering from shifts in other parts of the energy industry.
Join us on March 23-24 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. for a free virtual event examining how WealthWorks can help the Buckeye Hills Region catalyze growth in the local energy economy. The WealthWorks strategic capital framework emphasizes the creation of value chains, and is a proven tool for growing economic opportunities in rural communities.
During this workshop, hosted by Rural Action, Buckeye Hills Regional Council, and ACEnet, you will strengthen your understanding of asset-based economic development in Appalachian Ohio and connect with community development professionals in the first of three WealthWorks Institutes to be hosted this year.
