Believing Cassandra: how to be an optimist in a pessimist's world

Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Alan AtKisson
Chair: Teddy Brett

Recorded on 23 November 2010 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.

Coinciding with the reprint of Alan’s classic book, this event will look at how to build a bridge over the sea of despair, and show how to catch the wave to an enticing, sustainable future. Alan will discuss the pioneers who created the ideas, techniques and practices of sustainable living - the people who prove Cassandra's warnings wrong, by believing in them, and taking strategic action. Alan AtKisson is president and CEO of The AtKisson Group, an international sustainability consultancy to business and government.
