Natural Resource Industries and the Sustainability Challenge – Boulder, CO

The Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy, and the Environment and the Colorado Law Energy Innovation Initiative at Colorado Law will host the Martz Winter Symposium: Natural Resource Industries and the Sustainability Challenge on Feb. 27-28, 2014.

This conference will draw together people from different disciplines and backgrounds to discuss the specific challenges confronting efforts to operationalize sustainability in the context of natural resource industries broadly understood. The symposium will discuss the idea of sustainability and how it is taking shape in particular places and sectors; rigorously explore current efforts to re-organize certain business practices under the rubric of sustainability; and endeavor to identify practical, meaningful actions to deepen ongoing efforts to make sustainability a central tenet of our economic, social, and environmental future.
