Sheffield Green Commission’s Green fringe event: Shed talks - 1 July 2015

Sheffield Green Commission’s Green fringe event: Shed talks.
The Green commission are holding one final event before their report coming out in the Autumn. The Shed talks are 3-5 minute fast paced “think pieces” about sustainability from a range of speakers, including professors from both Universities and grass-roots activists. The event will be chaired by Paulette Edwards from BBC Radio Sheffield.
This event will bring up a range of topics related to the green commission and gives a chance for the 14 speakers to bring dymamic, short and thought provoking ideas to the audience. A schedule of all the speakers can be found here.
All the speakers have generously given their time free of charge to make this event happen and Sheffield Hallam University have kindly provided the venue free of charge.
The talks take place on Monday 20th July 4.30pm registration for a 4.45pm start at Sheffield Hallam University City Campus Peak Lecture Theatre (if you can only come along later, don’t worry, we will admit late-coming guests in between the talks). There are over 100 free tickets for this event and we want to encourage an audience as diverse as our SHED-sters so please circulate further.
Tickets can be reserved for free here: http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/green-fringe-shed-talks-tickets-17371242855
If you would like to offer a talk please let the green commission know aas they will try to rejig the agenda to fit you in.
One final note, cyclists please bring your bicycle bells in with you to ring our SHED-sters off the stage if they over-stay their 10 minute slot…
