Vancouver Agency Kumu, With the Sponsor Support of Met Gas, Brings Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to Vancouver to Headline Global Sustainability Conference

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 10, 2014) - As a part of GLOBE 2014, North America's Largest International Forum on Business and Environment, it was announced today that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has been added as the latest in a renowned line up of speakers and thought leaders addressing more than 9,000 summit participants between March 26-28.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy Jr., has built a solid reputation as a champion of the environment as President of the Waterkeeper Alliance with over 150 chapters worldwide. In recent years he's taken that advocacy to free-market capitalism, by becoming an outspoken supporter for clean technology investment. As a Venture Partner and Senior Associate in one of North America's largest venture capital companies investing in clean technology - Vantage Point Capital - Robert believes that market security - the kind that oil and gas benefit from - is critical for renewable energy and clean technology.

Addressing a forum of global businesses, investors, environmental advocates and government representatives on Wednesday, March 26 Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will share his perspectives as part of a special armchair dialogue on innovation and the future of clean technology.

The event has been sponsored by Met Gas Industries who have a clean process for capturing natural gas without using chemicals.

James Riley, producer of the Kennedy talk, and CEO of Kumu Agency, a full-service agency building digital tools specialized in sustainability and philanthropy marketing for companies like Telus and BC Hydro adds, "I've known Bobby for several years and believe his argument for investment in clean technology can inspire both conservative and liberals alike to share a worldview that everyone can embrace."

Kumu Agency and Fraser Riverkeeper will be hosting a private party with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on the evening of March 26th, 2014.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will speak at GLOBE 2014 at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Wednesday, March 26 at 1:30pm to an audience comprised of hundreds of business and government executives from around the world. For more information visit www.globeseries.com.
