Mark your calendars, west-coasters. June 6-7, Michael Braungart, the brains behind Cradle to Cradle (and one of the best minds in green design/technology today) will be teaching a workshop on C2C principles and intelligent materials pooling. The workshop should be useful for product designers, materials suppliers, marketers, and policymakers / regulators. It's slightly expensive, but should be much more educative than a simple conference.
For West Coast fans of Michael Braungart who can't make the workshop in CA, he will be speaking in Seattle on June 9th at the Fisher Pavilion in Seattle Center beginning at 7:30 p.m. A reception in advance of the talk is tentatively scheduled to begin 6 p.m. to promote the opportunity for mixing and meeting local politicos, business people, those who are environmentally-concerned - and, Michael, of course!
