Arizona State University
- By Dian Schaffhauser
has signed an agreement with Modavox
to Webcast the Sustainability Summit the school is hosting in Washington, DC September 17, 2008. Modavox will facilitate the delivery of streaming audio and video.
The Summit will bring together a panel of leaders in business, government, advocacy, and academia to address the most serious sustainability problems faced by the United States. It's expected to provide a lively discussion moderated by former CNN anchor and current ASU professor Aaron Brown of what the leaders from key sectors are doing and should be doing to ensure the planet will be able to continue to sustain life in the future.
The panelists will address such issues as automobile fuel efficiency and alternative energy sources; waste reduction; water quality; global carbon emissions; and the role that government, industry, and individuals can and should play in that effort.
"It is very unusual to have a subject this important discussed by a panel as distinguished as the one we have brought together," said Virgil Renzulli, VP for public affairs. "We are delighted that we could partner with Modavox to Webcast this discussion to an international audience."
