InnoTown Innovation Conference 2010

"Energy & Peak Oil - The Bigger Picture"

Ålesund Norway

Thursday, June 10 at 1:30 pm local time

Details of the event are available at this link:

Chris Martenson will discuss the fascinating and often underappreciated intersection of the "3 E's" --the economy, energy, and the environment.  In a talk recently presented to the UK Parliament, the UN, and at Yahoo corporate headquarters, Dr. Martenson will illustrate that technology and innovation have an incredibly important role to play in determining our response to a turbulent future, but one that we should be careful not to overestimate.  If you have been wondering how the Gulf oil disaster, European credit crisis, and recent stock market volatility are all connected, this talk is for you.

Dr. Martenson will replace Richard Heinberg as the keynote speaker on Peak Oil/Peak Everything at this international conference. 

Expected Take-Aways: 

• What complex, interconnected issues must be dealt with if we are to achieve a resilient future?

• Will new technologies or new discoveries save the day?

• What must we do to transition away from oil, coal and natural gas?

From the conference website: 

InnoTown is a truly unusual business conference for people who want to open up to the new opportunities that lie beyond the traditionally tried and tested. The aim of InnoTown is to move people's minds, both rationally and emotionally; to inspire and enhance creativity and innovation, to help motivate people to think new thoughts and dare to fail – to succeed.

The conference emphasises innovation, vision, inspiration, strategy, creativity, promotion and internationalisation. It creates good relations between people from different countries, trades, environments and professions. This results in stimulating new ideas and the developing, deepening and widening of existing knowledge and values.

Enjoy Norway, Chris. My family and I spent a year there as part of a teachers' exchange. I hope you get a chance to climb the steps in Alesund!
