Event Notes:

Topic: "Save the World in 20 Slides"

We're having our own version of PechaKucha, the Japanese presentation format based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. The format makes sure presentations are concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. (Learn more here)

Join us for presentations on these diverse topics:
  • The Benefits of a Green Roof
  • Sustainable Lighting in a Green World
  • Earthship Biotecture and Other Biologically Inspired Residential Buildings
  • A Chemical Free Environment
  • Collaborative Consumption
  • Tiny Homes
  • Science of Happiness
Interested in Presenting?
Our Theme:  
Anything pertaining to Green, Sustainable, and Holistic living!  Inspire us, educate us, tell us a story.  

Presentation: Each person shows 20 images. You have 20 seconds to show each image. You have no control over this. This results in a total presentation time of 6 minutes 40 seconds on a stage before the next presenter is up.

Formats: 20 images in JPEG format (size: 1024 x 768 px, landscape orientation). Keep your images under 450 KB each (already compressed) or 20 slides in PowerPoint (PPT) format.

Content: As long as it’s about green living, we want to hear it, but please keep it non-commercial.  

Want to Play?
Submit a topic synopsis for review (see below for each region’s deadlines and contact info).  Everyone is welcome, but Build It Green Members get first priority.

If your topic is approved, we’ll give you a deadline to submit your Images/PPT slides (~2weeks in advance of that month’s Guild meeting).
