Aspen Center for Environmental Studies is hosting a presentation on the Politics of Sustainability as part of the Earth Day celebration today.
The lecture will feature John Fox-Rubin, executive vice president of Fiberforge, a Glenwood Springs-based business that is a spin-off of Rocky Mountain Institute's early efforts to make the first 100 mpg vehicle. Fox-Rubin has taken his expertise in carbon-fiber development and is successfully lowering the national environmental footprint by developing affordable, strong and lightweight alternatives to steel and non-sustainable products used worldwide.
The presentation is part of the Tomorrow's Voices program, founded by teachers A.O. Forbes and Willard Clapper to cultivate responsible citizenship and ethical leadership in the youth of the Roaring Fork Valley.
The free lecture will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Roaring Fork High School auditorium in Carbondale.
