The bar opens early, so grab a drink and mingle. Chat with colleagues and network with sources. Browse the creations of Colorado artists and learn about groundbreaking research on environmental issues at a scientists' poster session. Elected officials, renowned scientists, Native American leaders and distinguished writers will share welcoming remarks and brief presentations to introduce you to Colorado and the conference. A state known for its towering mountains, rivers and a booming recreation economy, Colorado is a leader in renewable energy development and climate action. At the same time, the state has welcomed and benefited economically from an oil and gas boom, and it is now grappling with how to balance these seemingly conflicting ideals and goals.
Colorado is also home to pioneering national labs and research institutions. Tonight you’ll learn how research by Colorado scientists spans the globe — from the Far North to the South Pole — in both geographic reach and impact.
