American Renewable Energy Day (AREDAY), an annual forum promoting powerful cross-sector dialogue and collaboration, will recognize the unique and powerful contributions of women in the sustainability movement at its annual summit, August 17 to 21 at the Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Colo.

"It's incredibly exciting to realize at this year's AREDAY Summit we are extending the important work of women like Rachel Carson and Jane Jacobs, whose tireless efforts in the 1960s have paved the way for women in the modern environmental movement," said Sally Ranney, AREDAY co-director.
