About the Aspen Environment Forum:

For the past three years, the Aspen Environment Forum has stimulated discussions on a broad range of topics – from climate change to renewable energy policy, from technology innovation to natural resource conservation. This year, in keeping with the spirit of the of the Aspen Institute, the 2011 Aspen Environment Forum not only seeks to address these issues but aspires to challenge and advance the thinking of all invited speakers and attendees, as well as build new levels of understanding that bridge cultural and political differences.

The Forum is part discussion and part celebration – a celebration of the wonders of the natural world and the continual discovery of it’s aspects that describe who we are and where we came from. Many leading explorers, researchers and journalists who attend the Forum describe first hand accounts of the discoveries they are making and what new insights we can gain from them. By bringing informed dialogue to our campus, Aspen Meadows transforms into a venue that encourages all participants and attendees to share ideas that can spark creative insights leading to real solutions.
