The first annual Idaho Environmental Summit will be held in Boise, Idaho -December 5-7, 2006.
I plan to attend this meeting. It will be interesting to examine if and how this conference may stimulate the use of social networking concepts in the future. New online technologies, some of which I have identified on this Blog, should allow all of the topics that are being highlighted at the Summit to be discussed throughout the year and in the future by interested citizens.
The web site notes that "The mission of the Idaho Environmental Summit is to provide an annual event for the people of Idaho to work together to achieve a healthy environment through communication, education and action. "
Over thirty partner organizations are working together to provide an agenda full of sensational and nationally recognized speakers in six keynote events and over fifty breakout sessions. Environmental subject areas include:
Treaty Rights and Trust Responsibilities
Fish and Wildlife
Community Building and Environmental Science
Cleanup and Remediation
...and much more.
I will write a report here after the meeting is concluded.
