The Hikurangi Foundation, in association with the Sustainable Business Council, the Sustainable Business Network and Oxfam, are delighted to present The Jonathon Porritt Series (3 & 4 October 2013).

This is your chance to hear renowned UK sustainability leader, Sir Jonathon Porritt speak in New Zealand about his latest book, The World We Made: Alex McKay’s Story from 2050, a story that has one simple aim – to describe how we got our world back from the brink of collapse.

In fifty short entries such as ‘Malaria Defeated’, ‘Incredible Edible Cities’, and ‘Slumdog Billionaires’, THE WORLD WE MADE describes the key events, technological breakthroughs and lifestyle revolutions that will transform our planet over the next half century.

Jonathon is the founder director of Forum for the Future, and an eminent commentator, author and broadcaster. He has been closely involved in developing the sustainability strategies for companies like Unilever, Nike, Pepsi, M&S, Telefonica and Carillion, and is an adviser to the Prince of Wales and many other leaders in the field. Find out more about Jonathon on his blog.

Public book launches will be held in both Wellington and Auckland and will be hosted by business journalist and Hikurangi Chair, Rod Oram.
