Storifying 12 Big Ideas In Sustainability

Check out the highlights of a daylong conference on new ideas in conservation. I pulled in the best of the Twitter stream from Saturday's Conservation Remix in Seattle.

The 12 speakers shared a tremendous amount of information in their 15-minute talks, but you can get the gist of their ideas just by reading the Twitter stream from the event.

Using Storify, I curated the major bullet points from each of the talks, as Tweeted by conference attendees.

I left the conference wondering what the world would look like if more people were implementing the ideas proposed by speakers:

  • Building closed-loop indoor farms making beer, veggies and energy
  • Eating invasive species,
  • Using genetically engineered crops for environmental benefits
  • Putting plants on their roofs
  • Using sunlight instead of light bulbs
  • Studying the planet in gigapixels
  • Using nature’s technology to solve problems
  • Maximizing energy efficiency
  • Reshaping their corporations to account for environmental costs and benefits, and
  • Capturing carbon emissions in concrete.

See what you think:
