Next Melbourne Sustainability Drinks: 4th May 2011, 6-8pm
Our May guest speaker is Richard Gilmore. Richard joined Earthwatch in 2007 firstly as Operations and Programs Director and was appointed Executive Director that same year. Earthwatch is a not-for-profit environmental organisation which engages people in scientific field research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment. Following an Earthwatch two-week volunteer expedition to Kenya, Richard started on a journey of self-awareness that would lead to him becoming CEO of Earthwatch in just 2 years. Richard will provide a personal account of his journey and add his insights as to why people are aware of the many challenges we face, but what it is that holds us back from personal action. He will also describe how Earthwatch is responding to the changing learning needs of the corporate sector, with the development of field-based immersive learning programs for sustainability leaders.
This event provides an opportunity to meet other people interested in creating a more sustainable world, exchange ideas and hear different perspectives about the social and environmental challenges we face. Come and meet a wide range of passionate people who are interested in making a positive difference. It is non-sponsored (ie: you buy your own drinks!) and the atmosphere enables people to introduce themselves and feel comfortable with meeting new people and exchanging ideas. Please join us and invite your friends and colleagues who share the same values.
The May door prize is kindly donated by Just Africa: Specialists in African Art since 1970
