There’s an article I have written about the social enterprise I encountered on my trip in this month’s Cambridge Business Magazine – go to http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/subscribe-to-cambridge-busi… then click on the magazine and go to page 15
On Tuesday 28th April, I will be giving a short talk about my trip, the people I met, initiatives I came across and lessons I learnt. If you want to come along, please do. Details below:
Tuesday 28th April | 18.30-19.30 | Graham Storey Room, Trinity Hall | https://www.facebook.com/events/1576068459316888/
You are invited to attend a short talk by Emily Dunning, who has just returned from a 6-month trip to New Zealand, via the Trans-Mongolian Expressway, China and Japan and a few other countries in-between. She has been meeting people working on sustainability initiatives, particularly those inspiring others to take action. They vary from youth climate action groups in Taiwan to clean-up events in Russia to the social enterprise ethos inspiring change in Japan.
Expect half an hour of sharing some of her stories, introducing some of the people she met and the lessons she has learnt, then half an hour to engage in conversation about what it means for you, and the activities going on in Cambridge and the UK.
Who’s it for?
– Anyone interested in grassroots sustainability worldwide
– Those who want to hear about social enterprise in other countries
– Anyone wanting inspiration for travel
– Anyone who is a bit dissatisfied with where they’re at right now needing that gentle nudge to do something different.
Had an interview with them this morning – seems like it’s got so much potential!: The Low Cost Bed
Had such a great meeting with James and Polly at Cambridge Institute for Sustainability today – so fantastic to see their drive and what they’re achieving with big businesses. And there were so many helpful suggestions for the Hub and discussions about making the issues we’re both engaged in mainstream. After those kinds of meetings I’m always so hopeful that big positive change really can happen.
What a great bunch of people with some incredible ideas!
A Cambridge Diary, a daily photo diary by the wonderful photographer Martin Bond, and the ethos of 100 happy days, which has stuck with me in starting this blog, inspires this photo today! Cambridge really is something special- even a row of bins is attractive.
