A Globally Distributed EcoPanel with Al Gore

From VoiceCon Orlando 2008, Al Gore joins John Chambers for a discussion of the critical role innovation can play in mitigating climate change. The virtual discussion simultaneously addresses live audiences in London, UK and Orlando, and is hosted in Orlando by Cisco Chief Marketing Officer Sue Bostrom.

The key topics include: Latest observations of the effects of global warming and the impact of IT; how businesses can reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the use of new innovations; and how the technology industry can help create the most sustainable model for addressing global climate change. Using Cisco TelePresence, Mr. Gore participates from Nashville, TN, and Mr. Chambers from Cisco headquarters in San Jose, CA.

The upcoming Sustainability Virtual Summits live March 30th - April 1st. www.sustainabilityvirtualsummits.com. Supported by the United Nations will use Telepresence for 30% of its content. Unlike the Cisco Eco-panel that video taped the Telepresence screens, the Sustainability Virtual Summits is capturing the Telepresence feed from the Network. This solution is less expensive and scalable.
