FORUMe - Evolving Social Values and the Natural Resource Economy

Three-day conference in Moncton to discuss issues surrounding shale gas in New Brunswick

MONCTON - Dr. Roger Ouellette, Professor, Faculty of Arts, Socials Sciences, Université de Moncton and Dr. David Coleman, Professor, Dean of Engineering, University of New Brunswick; are pleased to announce FORUMe, June 3-5, 2012.

FORUMe is design to for those interested in participating in a science-based learning experience which will tackle key issues and concerns that surround the natural resource economy.

FORUMe is being presented by L'Université de Moncton's Clement Cormier Research Chair in Economic Development in collaboration with the University of New Brunswick.

"The steering committee's goal was to ensure key view points were well represented to hopefully cause the most complete picture possible to emerge" Dr. Ouellette said "Social values evolve, our economy evolves, having the most accurate knowledge to ensure we all make the right decision for our future is paramount."

"There are no simple answers here. We felt New Brunswickers were looking for a credible source of information to properly evaluate complex and confusing issues" said Dr David Coleman, Co-chair of FORUMe, “For example, we all recognize the importance of water. With the assistance of UNB's Earth Sciences faculty members, we'll be well equipped to further our understanding of water implications in Resource Development such as shale gas exploration and development."

Dr. Ouellette and Dr. Coleman also recognized the strength of having New Brunswick's two major learning institutions work together in presenting an unprecedented learning opportunity. 

They wish to invite New Brunswickers to join in the conversation by attending or participating online as Bell Aliant will generously broadcast FORUMe live online. You can find it here: http://playerv2.streamit.ca/PlayerV2.aspx?eventid=106

You can also interact with the FORUMe by submitting questions via Facebook and Twitter. Find out how on the conference registration page:  http://de.amiando.com/FORUMeParticipate.html

Finally, the sincere hope is that FORUMe will provide a balanced perspective that will contribute to bettering our collective understanding of complex matters currently at the forefront of public policy discussions.

It is important to note that FORUMe will not serve to endorse any particular views or perspective.

    move in politics, business or even entertainment
    world affects our lives a lot. Yet while viewers will inevitably make comparisons between Diane Sawyer and
    Katie Couric, they have very styles, as Diane Sawyer has more
    of a reputation for a 'harder' journalistic style. These websites can be dedicated
    to particular type of news like a few websites are dedicated
    to entertainment narovide the people with current world
    news but they face the barrier of space and time.

  11. Or maybe you look at it from a monetary standpoint and decide
    that Guy Ritchie and Madonna divorce was worse because they were married so long and have children
    and there is a lot of money involved. But unlike their blank counterparts,
    custom lanyards also can proclaim a marketing
    or motivational message to customers and employees.
    The singer will not be charged for her public intoxication, but her boyfriend

    to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL
