I’ve recently been hearing a lot more about the green economy. Not surprising, given the changing views on climate change. This new economy could bring about opportunities for Gen Y to couple its entrepreneurial sprit with the awareness and activism the generation has already demonstrated. Just imagine what could be done about climate change if Gen Y put the same energy into innovation that it put into such disparate interests as the presidential race (namely the Obama campaign) and customizing our iPods. And all while exercising our hard-sought-after freedom.
