Venture capitalist and entrepreneur F. Noel Perry will discuss green jobs, their presence in California and their potential to boost the economy and improve the state's quality of life at a talk at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25, at the Portola Valley Town Center at 765 Portola Road.
Mr. Perry is the founder of Next 10, a San Francisco-based nonpartisan organization attempting, through education and civic engagement, to foster a deeper understanding of the interplay of critical issues such as the state's economy and environment.
His talk, "Core Green Economy," is free and open to the public and will be based on a recent report from Next 10, "Many Shades of Green: Regional Distribution and Trends in California's Green Economy, 2011."

Acterra, a Palo Alto-based environmental organization, is sponsoring the event.
