 alt=May Sustainability Series:
Sustaining Our Snowpack
Tuesday, May 3
5:30 – 7:30 pm

The Alliance Center

Colorado’s population is projected to double by 2050. Coloradans have long loved their mountains and a key motivation for people flocking to the state is outdoor recreation. Ski areas represent a $4.8 billion annual impact in Colorado’s economy and account for 46,000 local jobs. Their success and long term viability rely on good snowpack. How are Colorado resorts adapting to the changing climate and attendant changing snow conditions in Colorado and across the globe?  alt=Are they addressing the need for both mitigation and adaptation? What impacts are they experiencing from climate change and what do they foresee in the future? How do they power their lifts, restaurants, snowmobiles and other infrastructure, and what are their plans for a clean energy future for resorts?

Jorge Rivera of George Washington University will present the academic side of this concept and describe the results of  a 25-year study examining how ski resorts in the West manage climate change uncertainty.

 alt=Judy Dorsey, founding President and Principal engineer of Brendle Group, will share 15 years of real life sustainability applications that Brendle Group has implemented as consultants of NSAA’s Sustainable Slopes, the NSAA Climate Challenge, and leading ski areas throughout the US including A-Basin, Aspen, Alta, Jackson Hole, Taos, and Steamboat.

Sha Miklas, Environmental Manager & Guest Services Manager for Arapahoe Basin ski area will conclude the presentation, speaking to the actual application of sustainability practices at A-Basin, one of the treasures of the local ski community.

Networking  |  5:30 – 6 pm
Program  |  6 – 7 pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED!
Wednesday, May 18
5:30 – 7:30 pm

The Alliance Center

Feeling bombarded with all of the political ads on TV this time of year? Ready to tune out of campaign season? Don’t get overwhelmed – get educated.

Join us to learn about the Political TV Ad Archive (powered by Internet Archive), a new and exciting resource that is tracking political TV ads in the presidential primaries this year. Partnering with leading journalism organizations, the Political TV Ad Archive compiles political ads on its website, archives them for future viewing, and checks the facts and follows the money behind each one. The project provides data detailing how often, when, and where each of the ads air on TV, helping you understand exactly what messages candidates are trying to send you – and it’s all available for download!

So before you burn out on political ads, learn to see them in a new light. You’ll learn to use the resource directly from its creators, and hear from leading industry experts to help decode the messages – especially the messages we’ve been exposed to here in Colorado. Along the way, you may just become a more informed, engaged voter and citizen.

Join us!

Presenters:
Nancy Watzman, managing editor, Television Archive, Internet Archive
Burt Hubbard, journalism instructor at CU-Boulder, editorial director at i-News Network at Rocky Mountain PBS
