As part of the American Renewable Energy Day’s eighth summit, Ocean Elders, a group of global leaders promoting global ocean conservation, hosted a gala dinner at Gerald and Glenda Greenwald’s Tuscan-style Aspen home. The event culminated with a presentation and conversation by Dr. Sylvia Earle and Ted Turner. As guests sipped organic Root cocktails, Ocean Elder Sir Richard Branson joined the conversation by video while actress and activist Daryl Hannah emceed the evening. Earle and Turner are joined by fellow Ocean Elders Jackson Brown, Jean- Michel Cousteau, Capt. Don Walsh and Neil Young, among others. AREDay’s founder Chip Comins and Sally Ranney bring environmental luminaries, senators, billionaires, admirals, and policy makers to Aspen for one of the most touted events of the year.
