Politics of Sustainability Lectures | Robert Nickelsberg

Robert Nickelsburg will be present on his experience as a photo journalist in Afghanistan over the past two decades. Robert is an award-winning photojournalist who covered Afghanistan for 25 years for Time magazine and The New York Times from 1988-2013. His new book, Afghanistan - A Distant War, won the Olivier Rebbot Award in 2014 from the Overseas Press Club for the best reporting from abroad in books and magazines, and chronicles Afghanistan from when the Soviet Army withdrew in 1988 until the beginning of the US-NATO withdrawal in 2013. The book "captures the brutality and suffering, often amid stunning beauty,of the convulsions that have engulfed Afghanistan. Here he presents an extraordinary portfolio of images, accompanied by incisive commentary, that explains the country's tragic history."

Aspen Center for Environmental Studies is now home to the long-successful Tomorrow’s Voices program, founded by local teachers AO Forbes and the late Willard Clapper to cultivate responsible citizenship and ethical leadership in the youth of the Roaring Fork Valley. 

Each year, they open up a selection of their Politics of Sustainability classes to the public. Join us for what is sure to be an inspiring inter-generational conversation.
