Snowmass, Colo., July 19, 2007—Rocky Mountain Institute today announced that Former President Bill Clinton will participate in the August 9–10, 2007 celebration of the Institute's 25th anniversary.

President Clinton will be participating in its “RMI25: Celebrating Solutions,” held August 9–10, 2007. Activities over a two-day period include a free, public RMI Quest for Solutions (RMIQ) presentation as well as an all-day Symposium in Aspen and a Gala at the Peace Ranch in Basalt.

In the mid-1990s, RMI worked for the President in an effort to “green” the Whitehouse and the Old Executive Building. Today, RMI is working with him again on the Clinton Climate Initiative. Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) applies the Clinton Foundation's business-oriented approach to fight climate change in practical, measurable, and significant ways. The first phase of the initiative is focused on reducing greenhouse-gas emissions in the world's largest cities. RMI will be offering technical expertise focusing on a whole systems approach to making buildings more energy efficient as part as CCI's first program, an Energy Efficiency Building Retrofit Program.”

In addition to President Clinton, another twenty or more luminaries will be featured, including Thomas Friedman of the New York Times, Christine Loh of Hong Kong's Civic Exchange, Boston Scientific's cofounder John Abele, to name a few. RMI is not only celebrating its 25-year milestone but looking ahead to how it will be involved as a change agent in the next 25 years.
