4th June 2011, Oxford
BioRegional’s co-founders are speaking at TEDxOxbridge – an event bringing together over 20 notable activists, business mavericks, designers, engineers, musicians, politicians, and scientists to share their ideas worth spreading. Over 250 carefully-chosen attendees will be coming from both Oxford and Cambridge universities and their networks to explore how commerce, science, technology, and the humanities can collaborate to redraw the lines of business.
The event will take place all day Saturday, June 4th, 2011 at Said Business School in Oxford. Presentations and performances will range from 4 to 18 minutes in length, leaving plenty of space for networking and overflow conversations with fellow attendees and speakers. Afterward, there will be a drinks reception followed by self-organized topical dinners with speakers, and a late-night after-party featuring two DJ guests.
In person tickets for the event are now sold out but you can watch the talks on a big screen for free at the nearby Jamfactory and get tickets for the after party.
If you are involved in building, regeneration, design, energy or sustainability you will probably have the UK’s biggest green building expo already ringed in your diary.
We’re running seminars and workshops on all three days to share our 15 years of sustainability experience with you. We’ll be bringing all the Ecobuild ideas together to help create a holistic sustainability framework for your project or business. And our experts will be looking at some hot topics: Big Society, Biomass Energy, Green Deal, BedZED, Green Entrepreneurship and Green Behaviour Change.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Wednesday October 27 2010 @ 9:00am PST. ONE PLANET TRAINING COURSE. Eco-districts + Eco-lifestyles = One Planet Communities. Learn from Geof Syphers, Chief Sustainability Officer at Sonoma Mountain Village, how this 1,900 unit masterplanned, solar-powered community is being designed to create an 83% reduction in total carbon footprint of its residents — and creating thousands of green jobs with its green business incubator. The workshop goes on to teach the practical implementation of the One Planet Living process, including strategies for Zero Carbon, Zero Waste, and Sustainable Food and Transportation. You will help create a Sustainability Action Plan for a real-world new project and learn the science and process of the One Planet Living program through its application. The program will emphasize “fostering” and “enabling” eco-lifestyles for residents in new build and existing building situations, which have been shown at the BedZED eco-neighborhood in the UK to have contributed 42% of total carbon savings. Learn from Greg Searle, Executive Director at BioRegional North America and a former BedZED resident, how this eco-lifestyles program succeeded and is evolving in One Planet Communities around the world.
