TEDXPerth 2014 is coming this weekend!

The local TED Talk event for 2014 is happening this Saturday 4th October at the Perth Concert Hall, but unfortunately tickets are all sold out. You might get lucky and score on from the TED Perth Facebook page, as that seems to be the place to grab unwanted tickets. You can also get updates on the TEDPerth Twitter page.

If you aren’t able to do that, you can still catch all the action at Northbridge Piazza (Cnr James &, Lake St), where there will be a live broadcast of the event, starting from 9:30am this Saturday.

Sustaining People is especially excited about hearing from three of their speakers, who are leaders in the sustainable development field in Australia. Learn a little more about them below:

Adam Johnson

Adam Johnson

Adam is a waste and recycling entrepreneur who has over 15 years’ experience in waste management. Adam believes in a world without waste and created Garbologie, a ‘network of waste entrepreneurs’ designed to build a community and a movement behind closed loop waste management. What he is doing with mattresses is CRAZY. We are looking forward to an inspirational presentation about what Australian entrepreneurs can do to create a better way of doing business.

Peter Newman

Peter Newman

Peter is well known in the Australian sustainability community, having been given an Order of Australia this year for his contributions to sustainable urban planning and transport in Western Australia. He is currently the Director of the Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute (CUSP) and was responsible for bringing our good friend Jeffrey Sachs to Perth to speak. We are looking forward to hearing about his vision for the future sustainability of Perth and Western Australia.

Ernesto Sirolli

Ernesto Sirolli

Ernest is a real advocate for community led enterprise and an authority on sustainable economic development. The economic development program he developed in Esperance WA, was so successful that it was adopted by over 250 communities worldwide. Ernest now runs the Sirolli Institute which is training communities across Australia, Canada, UK, USA and Scotland. We are looking forward to learning the secret to local sustainable enterprise, and what we can all do to make a difference in our own community.

If you are already going, see you there. If you haven’t got a ticket, head down to the Northbridge Piazza, bring a picnic and enjoy the free showing!
