"An International Conference hosted by The Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy, and the Environment and The Colorado Law Energy Innovation Initiative" 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. This will be the first annual Martz Winter Symposium hosted at the University of Colorado Law School. The goal of the Martz Winter Conference is to address the important natural resource, energy, and environmental challenges of our time in a forum that includes all of the stakeholders and in an atmosphere in which all views are solicited and evaluated in a respectful but rigorous manner, and from which thoughtful solutions can emerge. By bringing together thought leaders from industry, government, the professions, NGOs and the community at large, the Conference will endeavor to promote a more effective understanding and help forge commonsense, workable policy solutions.
