Sustainability Stories – Wed 26th Oct at 9pm

A night of local activists, groups and NGOs telling their sustainability stories in The Loft, Bridge Street, Galway between 9pm-11pm on Wednesday 26th October.

sunstainabilitystories2016As part of Convergence Sustainable Living Festival 2016 Transition Galway is running what is called a PechaKucha which will be followed by an interview with writer and activist Mark Boyle.

PechaKucha is an exciting presentation format where guest speakers show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and the speakers talk along to the images – this keeps presentations concise, fast-paced and fun.
The title for this PechaKucha is ‘Sustainability Stories’ and will feature a wide range of local environmental activists, NGOs and groups who are all working to make Galway a more resilient and sustainable place.

The PechaKucha presentations will be followed by an on-stage interview with writer and activist Mark Boyle. Mark is the author of ‘Moneyless Man: A Year of Freeconomic Living’, ‘The Moneyless Manifesto’ and ‘Drinking Molotov Cocktails with Gandhi’. He also writes intermittently for various international newspapers and magazines, such as ‘The Guardian’ and ‘Permaculture Magazine’.

This free event takes place on Wednesday 26th October starting at 9pm and finishing about 11pm in ‘The Loft’ (upstairs from ‘Seven’ on Bridge Street, Galway City). All welcome!

“Powered by PechaKucha” events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format.
