How to Participate in Aspen Environment Forum 2012

By Jeffrey Harris

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. As the Forum continues to change, we are excited to offer some exciting new ways for you to engage with us, even if you can’t attend. You can now follow this year’s Forum on Twitter @AIEnvironment and with the hash tag #AEF2012. You can also follow our partners @AspenInstitute@NatGeoGreen, and @NatGeoMag. Additionally, NPR’s Talk of the Nation will be airing live from the Forum on June 25 and Aspen Public Radio will be broadcasting several sessions live. For full coverage on National Geographic’s website check out their Aspen Environment Forum blog. As with all Institute events, you can also keep up with us on FacebookFlickr, and YouTube.

    Good morning,
    My name are Serge Christian Bineli, Head of Administration, Finance and Marketing of a one year environment company in Cameroon (Africa).
    We have associated technologies relating to Microbial Oil Field Applications and well stimulation, and “Environment in General.
    My problem is this:
    Africa’s countries are not pushing companies to think more about environmental issues. For somebody who has very good expirience like you, what such of advertisment can you give us?
    Best Regards

    We are extremely excited about this forum’s subject –Living the New Normal– but I just hope it doesn’t focus only on global warming as there are plenty of other ways we are damaging our environment that don’t involve greenhouse gases. Perhaps it’s the nature of our business but if the public knew more about the contamination of our soil and groundwater –from both legal and illegal dumping– there would be more done to combat this environmental tragedy then there is today. Much more.
