Politics of Sustainability Lectures | Kevin Brehm

Kevin Brehm, Associate at Rocky Mountain Institute, will present "Reinventing Fire: An Introduction to RMI" at the next Politics of Sustainability Lecture for Tomorrow's Voices.

Kevin joined RMI from the University of Colorado MBA program, where he focused on finance and sustainability while leading his peers as a class president. Kevin entered business school as an experienced educator, having facilitated learning as a classroom teacher and outdoor educator. From 2007 to 2009 Kevin served in the inaugural Denver Teach for America corps, during which time he taught secondary science and geography classes while collaborating on school and district-wide curriculum development teams.

Kevin has promoted and implemented community-level energy efficiency programs through experience with Utah Clean energy and Boulder County EnergySmart. In 2014 he conducted a market assessment for an innovative solar technology in a collaboration with NREL Commercialization Assistance Program.

Aspen Center for Environmental Studies is now home to the long-successful Tomorrow’s Voices program, founded by local teachers AO Forbes and 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 on these Monday nights at 6:30pm in the auditorium of Roaring Fork High School in Carbondale for what are sure to be inspiring inter-generational conversations.

Teacher, Mentor, Advocate | Remembering Willard Clapper

Posted in Bulletin Board

Willard was loved and respected by our community and his recent passing has caused us to reflect on his excellent life. Willard was known for his big bear hugs and quick wit, but also for a life dedicated to investing in the future of his community. Many in Aspen knew him for his service at the volunteer fire department, but we at ACES knew him as an educator, a mentor, and advocate.
