Climate Change, Tallberg Forum, Sweden

In June of 2007, I participated for the first time at the Tallberg Forum in Sweden, where about 500 participants discussed the topic : " As the present path is not sustainable -what is ? "
The group was a mixture of experts and individuals that feel strongly about this issue and the problem was being approached from several angles such as :

Global Governance
New Development Paradigm
Land-Use, Water and Food
Capital Markets
Public Health Threats
Reinventing Production and Transportation
Risks and Security in a Ecosystem Breakdown

My particular interest was the New Development Paradigm and the use of renewable energy to develop this new paradigm. It was a very international and impressive group of people and for more information check the webssite at :
