BY LISA PELLEGRINO
@ VOL 28
ON FEB 21, 2016
“Three R's! The waste hierarchy! It’s a hierarchy because reducing is more effective than reusing and reusing is more effective than recycling.”
In A Zero-Waste Junkie's Journey to Pesto from PechaKucha Night Atlanta’s 28th volume speaker Lisa Pellegrino discusses what she has learned while recovering from being a “zero-waste junky”. As part of her recovery she is ensuring that she is part of A (not THE) solution on a micro scale. Hear Lisa’s background in sustainability, where that background led her, and where she has followed that road to today… (Hint: pesto is part of it).

Towards a Circular Economy
BY IULIA FALCAN
@ POLICY SOLUTIONS TO CLIMATE CHANGE CHALLENGES
ON APR 19, 2017
Iulia Falcan shares the concept of circular economy, refering broadly to reducing waste as much as possible on one side, and developing long lasting and re-usable day-to-day products on the other, thus limiting the negative impact that waste has on the natural environment.
The concept of circular economy encompasses many phenomena, of varying degrees of complexity, that allow even the most seemingly disengaged person to have a positive impact on the environment.
Dipping your toe into the sea of knowledge on ways towards environmental sustainability can be overwhelming. However, be assured that there are many small changes anyone can make that will have a positive impact!

Flyer for PKN Bali Vol. 6
Bali is readying things for its upcoming PechaKucha Night Vol. 6, set to take place August 6 as part of the Sanur Village Festival. We've included some details about the festival, sent to us from PKN Bali organizer Arief Budiman. Sanur Village Festival set for August 4 – 8, 2010 taking place at Segara Ayu beach and Inna Grand Bali Beach Sanur. “Saha Nuhur” is preferred for this year’s theme of the festival that literally means “the passion to visit a holy place” and later become the name of “Sanur”. With its popularity we believe that Sanur Village Festival will attract more visitors to the island of Bali this year and more importantly to map this event in the world of tourism calendar. This year, Sanur Village Festival agenda are classic highlights of Bazaar & Food Festival, Jazz Festival, and 6th Sanur Golf Tournament as well as our most anticipated Street Parade. The International Kite Festival and Jukung Festival would definitely sensate the spectators with their artistic creations and breathtaking races. There will be another rejuvenate of our program, with the relocation of our Mass Yoga program to a serene Yoga Village. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Replant, & Recovery (5R) (Action! is an important part of Sanur Village Festival 2010 . It aims to encourage the concrete actions of the people of Bali as well as all of the citizens of the earth to help extend the age of the earth. Reduce, reuse, recycle, plant back, and restore are the five simple activities which could bring miracle on earth if carried out continuously and simultaneously. Activities undertaken include tree planting neem Intaran / neem (Azaridachta indica); the planting of coral reefs; the release of hatchlings (young turtles); beach clean ups activities, and environmental exhibitions.
The Art of Photographing Water, Indonesian Comics, and Post-Earthquake Christchurch
Presentations Chris Tennant is a physicist by day, but behind the lens he becomes the champion of photographing water. This presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1) takes us on an exploration of the soul of water's essence. The images are amazing enough, but Chris' narrative opens us to a deeper understanding of why we are always drawn to images of water. Anto Motulz is an Indonesian comic book artist, and in this presentation (in Indonesian, from PKN Jakarta Vol. 9) he tells us about the medium he had decided to express himself in. As a comic artist, he does not limit himself by drawing with one tool, and instead he will move from ballpoint to pencil to color pencil to brush, even using sticky notes as a medium. He also shares stories how he himself as an artist is adapting to technology development, from using Wacom and the iPad in creating his works. Posters We have a few additions to the Tumblr blog today, including posters for PKN Castellon Vol. 1, PKN Pisa Vol. 2, and PKN Christchurch Vol. 14 (pictured above). Here's more from PKN Christchurch organizer Jessica Halliday, on the poster, the upcoming event, and the current state of post-earthquake Christchurch.The poster was designed by noted New Zealand artist Julia Morison. We're in raptures over it -- it's the first illustrative design we've had for a PKN poster, hey're usually by designers who are obsessed with typography, not that there's anything wrong with that but it's a great privilege to have Julia make something so distinctive for us that so beautifully expresses PechaKucha. This time we're going to hold PechaKucha Night in The Court Theatre's temporary shed -- a post-earthquake example of temporary adaptive reuse of an industrial building for cultural purposes. It's in the urban-fringe village of Addington, so we're stepping outside the central city for the first time. Much of our central city is still cordoned off -- as it has been since the 22 February earthquake -- and it is now estimated that at least 80% of our central city buildings will be demolished. In addition, over 7000 domestic properties have been 'red-zoned,' meaning they won't be rebuilt on their existing sites and thousands of people have to find new places to live. This is a devastating loss and life here is still very difficult for many of the city's citizens. We hope PKNCHCH14 will be something of a bright spark in the cold, winter darkness. We've got an excellent line up -- from the eight listed on the poster we've now risen to 11 superb speakers from the fields of architecture, science, visual art and design. We may even get a special surprise twelfth speaker...Video Today, instead of photos, we share a video that offers a taste of the recent PKN Bilbao Vol. 13. Calendar Tonight (July 3) you can catch PKN Cape Town Vol. 19 -- we're told there will be an 11-year-old presenter in the lineup -- and tomorrow you can look to the following two events: PKN Amsterdam Vol. 22 and PKN Utsunomiya Vol. 1.
