The World Marathon Majors
BY STEPHEN FERGUSON
@ VOL 12
ON APR 25, 2019
"My running career started in 2011 when I accidentally caught diabetes and so my first job was to buy a pair of running shoes and sign-up for a couch to 5k."
Stephen Ferguson talks to us about the challenge of running his first marathon and that this inspired him to continue running and be awarded the World Marathon Majors, a medal won by fewer people than have climbed Mount Everest.

Walk a Mile in my Shoes
BY CHRIS MAHER
@ VOL 5
ON MAY 13, 2016
This incredible talk is about a man's path to enlightment and empathy via the shoes on his feet, and those purchased along the way. A tale of fetish and frienships that ask us all to cosider how we treat others, a true reminder of what it is to be humane.
The Future of Flooding
BY SAMUEL BUDIN
@ VOL 16
ON SEP 01, 2016
Samuel Lang Budin is a social documentary photographer living in Brooklyn and working primarily in the depressive realist mode. He makes 35mm and medium format slide shows about climate change anxiety, aging and death, naked people in their own homes, the personal discomforts of travel, and the encroaching sea. Just you wait!
Let's Build a City
BY VIRGIL IERUBINO
@ VOL 6
ON SEP 13, 2016
Virgil Ierubino asks if you could build a city from the ground up, how would you do it? I don't just mean the buildings. By 'city' I mean the collection of humans and facilities and services and systems that collectively form a functioning society. Would you make different decisions than those which are made for us, all around us, every day? Or, realising that this question assumes you are in a position of considerable power, maybe you'd just go nuts?
This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 11th, 2017.
Brian Weaver, Impact Hub Inverness
BY BRIAN WEAVER
@ VOL 35
ON OCT 25, 2018
Brian Weaver’s previous paid employment includes drug sales, money lender, and cowboy. In his fifties he managed the Business Starts programme for Highlands and Islands Enterprise, and in his sixties he fronted HISEZ, which gives business advice to social enterprises, while managing to be a profitable, not-for-profit business in its own right. Impact Hub Inverness continues the work of HISEZ, but also provides a small co-working space with 100 partners world-wide. Brian didn’t predict the fax, the computer or the mobile phone, and doesn’t have a clue about what will come next.
Danmark for Målene
BY THERESA BLEGVAD
@ VOL 40
ON MAY 22, 2019
Theresa Blegvad, at the time candidate for the European Parliament, and self-proclaimed "klimatosse" (climate-action madwoman) swings by to talk about the 17 sustainable development goals, developed by the UN.
She is part of the organization "Danmark for Målene" (Denmark For the Goals) that is all about spreading the word and how we can implement them.
(In a funny twist of fate, it turns out Theresa helped get Pecha Kucha to Aarhus, and actually was on stage at the very first event!)

Exchanging photographic or video greetings between PechaKucha Night cities is something we've been seeing for a while now, and here's an example of some good luck cheers between two cities -- Cleveland and Athens -- who recently celebrated their third and second volumes respectively. Pictured above, greetings from Cleveland. Below, the response from Athens. The two cities plan on continuing the exchanges at future events.
Greetings from PKN Providence

Greening the City in Vancouver

You'll find a few photos from the event on Flickr user miketippett's photostream.
Greetings from PKN Cities
As part of this week's 10th anniversary celebrations, we asked PKN city organizers to send us a special greeting image that we will include in a special City Loop, to share at our PKN Tokyo Vol. 100 -- the City Loop is the slideshow that is shown at all PKNs before the the start and during the breaks, showing photos from PKN events around the world. We've received so many great ones, like the one you see pictured here, from the PKN Murcia organizers. We will also share this special City Loop with all city organizers, and so they may share it at a PKN near you.
Greeting from 700
As we just posted, it was indeed a fantastic Tokyo Designers Week event, with close to 700 in attendance -- and here's a little greeting from that audience, beautifully captured by photographer Michael Holmes.

And that's when I was introduced to photography."In Inside My Green Book from Chennai Vol. 8., an ambitious nature photographer and educator, K. Ramnath Chandrasekhar passionately shares a quest to connect us to the nature through photography.

Monkeys Go Green
"The world is abundant. If you’re willing to take leftovers, you can get nearly everything. Just ask for it." In Monkeys Go Green from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 30, Roos Derks shares on her urban gardening projects. Starting off on a polluted and neglected old rubber factory terrain, Derks brings us to the political and cultural center of the Mandril in Maastricht. Guided by insights from Social Permaculture, she shows why these type of projects are surprisingly doable, important, and a lot of fun.
