After Fossil Fuels: The Next Economy

At the close of the hottest summer in recorded history, there is now widespread understanding that climate change is already upon us.

But will the post-fossil fuel economy be prosperous, fair, durable, and resilient? What political economic and social changes must we make to ensure its success?

A remarkable gathering of many of the world’s leading thinkers, political figures, economists, investors, philanthropists, business leaders, educators, and public intellectuals will explore those questions in depth at this three-day conference. They will discuss what changes are urgently needed to spur a successful transition to a sustainable, resilient, prosperous, and equitable economy driven by safe, renewable energy.

The goals of this unique conference are bold: to transcend ideological and political differences, to highlight effective strategies, and to mobilize support for building the next economy.
