NEXT UP: September Green Drinks
Green Drinks is Thursday, Sept 27th from 6-8pm and we're talking about the Eco Summit 2012! We will be at Barely's Brew House, right across the street from the Convention Center, the site of this year's Eco Summit September 30th - October 5th. As stated on the official website www.ecosummit2012.org :
EcoSummit 2012 will bring together the world's most respected minds in ecological science to discuss restoring the planet's ecosystems. Come hear Pulitzer Prize winners E.O. Wilson and Jared Diamond, Kyoto Prize winner Simon Levin, Stockholm Water Prize laureates Sven Jørgensen and William Mitsch, and many others in the first conference ever linking the Ecological Society of America (ESA), The International Association for Ecology (INTECOL) and the Society for Ecological Restoration International (SER).
We expect 1500 to 1600 delegates from 75 countries to come to Columbus, Ohio, USA, for EcoSummit 2012 to hear 10 plenary presentations from the world's premier ecologists and environmental scientists and practitioners, and 600 invited presentations in 65 symposia from around the world, and to participate in 21 forums and workshops on practical issues related to improving our environment. In addition, there are another 850 general sessions and poster presentations during EcoSummit 2012.
So, that's all fine and well but what do we really need to know about the Eco Summit right in our backyard this year? Our Guest speaker will let you in on all the goods from behind the scenes of planning this international event. So come, grab a beer and learn something!
If you have some time to give, the Eco Summit is still looking for volunteers (not to mention you get to go to half a day of the summit for every 4 hours volunteered).
