Introducing Canada DotGreen with Joan Kerr and Glenn McKnight
DotGreen announces the International DotGreen Bureau program, an innovative initiative with the mission to advance the green movement through collaboration with DotGreen Community, Inc. and the DotGreen Foundation on a regional level. DotGreen will promote local green organizations and businesses as it joins the green movement through new and local friendships around the world, providing connections with nearby DotGreen representatives. DotGreen Bureaus allow for local alliances with the DotGreen Foundation creating a local reach and meaning to the global .green Top Level Domain. DotGreen’s Founder, Annalisa Roger believes the Bureaus will play an important and trusted grass roots role in the public’s awareness to the benefits of .green domain names in forwarding the green movement online and in spurring growth in the (local) green economy.
Alongside the ICANN meeting in Toronto, Joan Kerr and Glenn McKnight are ready to introduce Canada DotGreen at the inaugural Bureau reception. “Canada DotGreen Social” will bring local Green businesses and organizations to gather in a relaxed setting to meet with Kerr, McKnight and The DotGreen Community, Inc. Team. The event is designed for local green leaders and organizations to connect and share their ideas and projects for the benefit of our world. Green domain developers are also invited. The reception allows participants to meet with the Canada DotGreen Bureau representatives, Kerr and McKnight and to learn more from the DotGreen Team in town from Northern California.
