Skateboarders, last night Nick Parker in full flow Propellor outside 100 Spear, 1 Propellor, 2 Illumination, British Consulate UK Trade & Investment Minis Jennifer (Biringer) Patrin (Watanatada) and I Wattson – offered by DIY Kyoto, one of the Mission’s 19 UK cleantech firms James (Lawn), Jaclyn (Mason), Oli (Barrett) and Bronwyn (Kunhardt)
First full day of the Cleantech Forum, which provided a huge amount nof grist for the six columns I have to write on Sunday – on which more anon. In the evening, we made our way across to the British Consulate for a wonderful reception to mark the ending of the Clean & Cool Mission, with participants radiantly happy about the collective adventure we have been on this past week.
My congratulations to Brownyn and James of Polecat, Oli who compered, Richard Miller of the UK Technology Strategy Board, whose support was crucial, and Jaclyn Mason of UK Technology & Investment, based in San Francisco.
Am more than ever determined to see how SustainAbility (already based in San Francisco, in the form of Jennifer Biringer and Patrin Watanatada) and Volans can do to help drive and shape the sustainability movement in this part of the world.
