After two successful years of bringing the world’s leading authorities on energy and environmental issues together for a day of intelligent exchange on the changing landscape of energy markets, conservation efforts, and alternatives to fossil fuels, The Atlantic expanded its Green Intelligence Forum to two days in 2010.
The Atlantic's 2010 Green Intelligence Forum dedicated a full day to Green Energy and Sustainability, looking at supply-chain and manufacturing issues as well as the energy market itself. The following morning, the Forum built upon the foundation laid at the The Atlantic's 2009 Water Summit, exploring the nexus of water and energy as well as water quality and development policy.
As always, The Atlantic drew upon a wide range of professions and 360º points of view to facilitate a penetrating, lively, and illuminating two days of conversation.

Fifteen Years Later:
Are We Any Safer?
The Atlantic will explore the nation’s homeland security to examine the strengths and remaining vulnerabilities of our security apparatus and our preparedness to prevent the next terrorist attack.
The New Old Age
Since the turn of the 20th century, average life expectancy has been rising steadily. In the United States, we can now expect to live an average of three decades longer than our great-grandparents. As we collectively age, our societal understandings of the rhythms of an average lifespan have been slow to adapt. With nearly 10,000 baby boomers moving into retirement every day, The Atlantic will examine the shape of the new old age and its impact on society.
