Bestselling author, climate activist and minimalist, Sarah Wilson will be joining us to speak about 'why addressing the climate crisis is so important'. Which is a central theme of her latest book 'This One Wild Precious Life’.
I ran into Sarah a few years ago in Bondi one gloriously sunny morning, easy to recognise in her iconic green shorts, and asked about her latest book, thinking it would be about food
- “It’s about waking the F%$k up!” I rather liked this working title however, the hopeful path forward she describes to reconnect a fractured world, works better with the published title.
This was well before we choked on the bushfires that claimed three billion animals endemic only to Australia or almost 200 thousand kilometres of bush. She didn’t just jump on the bandwagon of climate conscious influencers, Sarah was already learning, researching and sharing that knowledge to inspire positive actions.
Sarah is now lending her voice to our Climate Tech Showcase and Awards to talk about the importance of the climate crisis. Please join us for this event.
