One of the ways to make sense of long distance traveling is to maximise the purposes of the trip. In a similar way that filling the car with passengers when one needs to drive somewhere gives maximum fuel efficiency, when David travels for a speaking engagement he hopes to appear more than once. So when it was announced that David Holmgren was to give a talk in Australia’s capital city, you might have wondered what would be his other engagements and programs while in the region?
Well, on the evening before the “Future scenarios and solutions” talk in Canberra, the renowned film director Peter Charles Downey is going to show his new film, Surviving earth, in which David is featured, so David will be taking part in a panel discussion following the screening, along with Prof. Ian Lowe, Julian Cribb, Prof. Stephen Bygrave, Peter Tait and the director, Peter Charles Downey himself. MC is Jenny Goldie from Sustainable Population Australia.
Here’s the film trailer.
If you are in the zone, come and join him on Dec 7, at Finkel theatre, ANU.
On the day after the talk on 9th Dec, David will be touring a great example of good local land care .
