The Premier Green Design Event
This green design conference will be on Saturday, February 21 from 8:30am-5:00pm at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco. Since it's inception about 6 years ago, Compostmodern was held every other year, but, due to the immense popularity and timeliness of the conent, it is now held annually.
Taken from the Website, "...this interdisciplinary conference explores the range of design thinking necessary to create a socially and ecologically responsible society. Designers, manufacturers and business leaders come together to find inspiration, share knowledge and explore real world opportunities for transforming products, industries and lives."
Speakers include Eames Demetrios of Eames Office, Saul Griffith of Makani Power, California College of the Arts (CCA) Design MBA Chair Nathan Shedroff, Allan Chochinov of Core 77, climate strategist Michel Gelobter, John Bielenberg and Pam Dorr of Project M and the HERO Housing Resource in Alabama, Emily Pilloton of Project H Design, and Autodesk Sustainable Design Program Manager Dawn Danby. GreenBiz editor and sustainability author Joel Makower will reprise his role as emcee.
For the first time, the event will also be webcast live and will be available for 90 days following, encouraging online participation at home, office, and educational institutions everywhere. There will even be an exclusive pre-conference tour of the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park.
