We are excited to be hosting NPR's Talk of the Nation for four days in Aspen, CO. The show will be aired June 25 - 28 in front of a live audience. June 25 and 26 will broadcast from the Paepcke Auditorium on the Institute's Aspen Meadows Campus.
The Aspen Environment Forum formally kicks off on Friday. This year's focus, Living the New Normal, will explore solutions for meeting the challenges we face from the changing conditions on earth.
Each year, at the start of the Aspen Environment Forum, I am asked the same question: What outcome do you expect from the Forum this year? My answer changes and is sometimes different depending on who is asking, but really it is the same.
The Aspen Environment Forum formally kicks off in one week. If you will be in town, but haven't gotten your ticket it is not too late. There are day passes still available and, as of today, you can purchase single event tickets through www.aspenshowtix.com. Below is a listing of events for which tickets are available. We hope to see you next week!
How do we adapt to the challenges presented by a changing climate? What are the solutions? What are the opportunities?
As you know, the Aspen Environment Forum will have the biggest names in the field -- Bill McKibben, Amory Lovins, Thomas Lovejoy, and Stuart Brand, just to name a few -- speaking to the biggest issues of our day. What you may not know, however, is that the Forum also has an incredible line-up of experts and leaders who you might not have known about before. Here are three more great reasons why you should register to be a part of the 2011 AEF!
