GreenTalk – ‘inspirational’ & ‘revolutionary’
The start of GreenTalk 2011 was delayed last night, but only because of the large number of people trying to buy tickets on the door.
When the curtain did go up just after 6.30pm, over 170 people filled Arnolfini in Bristol to hear talks from eleven of the UK’s leading practitioners and thinkers on climate change, food and energy security and the natural world.
With the spotlight on responses and solutions rather than barriers and problems, speakers engaged the audience with series of lively, challenging and at times moving presentations. And with the longest talk lasting less than 12 minutes GreenTalk presented some big ideas in a short format.
The talks, variously described by members of the audience as ‘inspirational’, ‘revolutionary’, and ‘brilliant’ are now being edited and will be made available on-line via the GreenTalk website.
GreenTalk was organised and produced by Climate Works Ltd in collaboration with Bristol’s Green Capital Partnership, as part of Good Living Week. The project received financial support from The Design Programme, Environmental iNet and the Creative Industries iNet.
