Green Speaking in Halifax and Prince Edward Island

I do a lot of public speaking — please remember that, if you’re looking for a speaker! — and speaking generally involves air travel. That troubles me. I do buy carbon credits to offset my emissions, and I always manage to amortize the emissions over several projects by doing a variety of things at my destination — picking up material for columns, doing new Green Interviews, networking and so on.

But the better solution would be to do the speaking without any travelling — and the Prince Edward Island Department of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Rural Development recently gave me a chance to try that. We recorded the third of three sessions on a separate video camera, and posted that session on this site, so that participants from all three occasions could see it on the web.

That means you can see it, too, and I’d love to have your feedback both on the technique and on the content. To see the presentation, just click here:
