genConnect is going green this weekend!
genConnect will be credentialed press at the 5th Annual Aspen Environment Forum on Sunday, June 25, and will be conducting one-on-one video interviews with some of the brightest minds in climate change, alternative energy, green technologies and investment, ocean exploration and preservation and environmentally conscious cities.
Sponsored by The Aspen Institute and National Geographic, this event will bring together experts, thought-leaders and citizens for a discussion and debate about how the planet and how its people must adapt to its changing conditions.
“genConnect is so pleased to be part of this important event, talking to leading thinkers in their field who are pioneering ways to combat climate change, create cleaner energy technologies, and invest smartly in green technology of the future,” said genConnect CEO Nancy Spears. “Our videos will help bring their vast knowledge of environmental issues to our readers and beyond with our numerous syndication partners.”
This year’s event theme, “Living in the New Normal,” is based in part on data showing that the United States’ long-term average temperature has warmed by half a degree in the last decade.
“We know the climate and contours of the planet are changing,” said Chris Johns, editor-in-chief of National Geographic magazine. ”How we adapt to these new parameters is a fundamental challenge we all face, and our success or failure will determine our future.”
