Events, blogs and tweets

I hate starting posts with apologies, but here goes. I have a list of posts I want to write and I just don’t have time to write them. Rather than let them sit in my mental inbox until I forget about them, I’m doing a quick update without fleshing out the bones so to speak.

Firstly, I’ve been to some rather excellent events hosted by wise women in London as of late, organised by the anything-but-lazy Polly who blogs over at the Lazy Environmentalist.

The three events have included a talk by Rob Hopkins of Transitions Towns and The Transition Handbook, a talk by Oliver Tickell on Kyoto2 and a fascinating evening on CSP introduced by Katherine Hamnett* and including talks on Desertec from trec UK and an intriguing proposition from Seawater Greenhouses. Polly is also heading up a campaign for Planetary Rights (like I said, anything but lazy!). I urge you to go check out the links and if you’re in London, try to get along to some of the Wise Women events.

Secondly, I’ve been to my first Sponge event. Again, check them out – great to put faces to names and to meet with some old acquaintances and ex-colleagues.

Thirdly, I was at the Sustainability and Economics event Phil blogs about here. Hilarious panel discussion, completely off topic (the phrase “spectrum of evil” was bandied around!). I have some notes and thoughts about the morning and if I ever get a chance I’ll try to blog something.

Finally, there are a few new blogs and twitterers (tweeters? twits?) to check out:


*I turned to my colleague and said the Katherine Hamnett to be met with a blank face – well, I was impressed and slightly starstruck…
