Through our intentional dialogues, public programs, annual policy forums, and environmental leadership initiative, the Energy and Environment Program creates impartial venues for global leaders to engage in informed discussion around energy and environmental challenges and solutions. The Program provides nonpartisan leadership and a neutral forum for improving energy and environmental policy-making through values-based dialogue by leveraging our core competency of convening professional, high-level, content-driven dialogues in the policy, science, finance, and business arenas.
The Catto Fellowship Program is an offshoot of the Aspen Institute's renowned Henry Crown Fellowship Program, the Rodel Fellowship Program and the Aspen Institute's other international leadership initiatives, all of which comprise the Aspen Global Leadership Network. The program gathers emerging leaders from business, government, journalism, and NGOs through an international environmental fellowship. This unique two-year program is intended to expand the role of environmental leadership by exposing emerging professionals to a broad array of energy and environmental issues and challenges as well as to each other.
The Aspen Institute and National Geographic have been honored to partner over the past 5 years on the Aspen Environment Forum, with its strong editorial content, fascinating speakers, talented photographers, and engaged participants. We have decided not to convene the Aspen Environment Forum in 2013 but will continue to partner on the important issues related to our human relationship with the natural environment. Stay tuned for more.
