What I was talking about in Austin, Texas…

I’m in Austin and already on the first evening (an hour after arrival…) I got to meet a couple of the austinites, active in the eco-movement, who will be attending the SXSW ECO-conference this week. Since I’ll be meeting a lot of people, in different sectors, I made a mixed (but very large…) presentation of Örebro and of the work we do (parts of the presentation is for download further down). Together with the amazing film about Rynningeviken, the transformation of an old dump and wasteland to a fantastic nature reserve, that would be my main messages during my days in Austin. If you haven’t seen the film about Rynningeviken, you have to do that: The amazing transformation of Rynningeviken

I’m pretty sure I woun’t be able to show the presentation that many times, since it will be very few organized long meetings with agendas and presentations, but I’m also sure that there might be of some interest to read a bit more about what Örebro is doing, and that’s why I’m presenting the presentation, including a lot of areas, here. (And for the swedes reading this, I will write in swedish soon…/Jag skriver snart på svenska…)
