GENI 2000 working for a better world
Dear GENI Friend,
Wasn't New Year's Eve a grand global celebration. We watched over 24 hours as each time zone rolled over. Anxious computer managers kept all night vigils but the lights stayed on and the interconnected electrical grid worked!
More people are aware of our integrated society than any other time, and we hope to capitalize on this fact. I'd like to share our goals for this year, which we believe will accelerate every nation towards a more prosperous economy and sustainable environment.
The GENI 2000 Game Plan is ambitious. We have brought together the U.S. Dept. of Energy and City of San Diego to host the next APEC (Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation) Energy Ministers Meeting in May. We will be mailing to the top 5 leaders in 200 nations as a lead up the United Nations Millennium Assembly. And the Bucky Fuller theater production will offer daily exposure through our exhibit, and the opportunity to broaden that exposure as the play opens in other cities. These are the big trimtab events, and the full agenda is enclosed.
We began this millennium with revitalized dreams for ourselves, our family and our community. You are unique in that your commitment extends to the global community. Together, our voice is getting more effective with each conference, each endorsement, each conversation. Thank you for being a critical part of this work.
In partnership for the planet,
p.s. Most of us can't remember a time without electricity, telephones or refrigeration. Just 100 years ago, few people had any modern conveniences. From Robert Samuelson's op-ed, our goal is to extend these societal benefits to over 2 billion people who remain unserved. Obviously we have the know-how but lack both political stability and will. That's what The GENI Initiative is all about.
