Can Consumption Become Sustainable?

Can Consumption Become Sustainable?

Sust Consump

24 January

Sydney Festival is joining forces with Unilever to present a lively and thought-provoking panel discussion with international and national panellists to debate the topic Can Consumption Become Sustainable?, asking if it is possible to use sustainable practices to increase the culture and lifestyle of a city, and our greater world.

The discussion will be chaired by broadcaster, author and comedian Adam Spencer, with panellists:
- Dr Val Curtis, Director, Hygiene Centre, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine;
- Jon Dee, Founder and Managing Director, Do Something! and 2010 NSW Australian of the Year;
- Ingrid Just, Spokesperson/Head of Media, CHOICE;
- Gavin Neath, Senior Vice President, Global Communications and Sustainability, Unilever.

The event follows Unilever’s global sustainability debate series across London, Rotterdam, Delhi and New York. The series was prompted by recent studies showing that while most people say they are concerned about sustainability issues and want to live sustainable lifestyles, there is still a gap between good intentions and taking action.

Where: City Recital Hall Angel Place, Sydney, NSW.
When: 6:30pm, Tuesday 24 January, 2012.
Cost: Admission is free, but bookings are essential.
