On March 25, State of the Planet 2010 will bring together the world's most influential and innovative thinkers and leaders in a wide range of fields—from many academic disciplines to media, government, policy and business spheres—to tackle critical issues facing the world. This year’s conference is the result of a partnership between the Earth Institute, The Economist and Ericsson.
State of the Planet 2010 will focus on four important challenges: climate change, poverty, economic recovery and international systems. Speakers will include President Felipe Calderón Hinojosa of Mexico; UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon; Jeffrey D. Sachs, director of the Earth Institute; Matthew Bishop, American business editor and New York bureau chief at The Economist; and Hans Vestberg, president and CEO of Ericsson.
Around the world, people will be able to participate via webcast and interactive elements. And at event sites in Beijing, New Delhi, London and Nairobi, speakers and attendees will be directly linked to the international debate, moderated from New York.
As part of the Earth Institute community, we invite you to submit a question to be answered at State of the Planet. Just email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected questions will be addressed at the event.
