Forethought is a public talk series based in Auckland and Wellington: two experts deliver seemingly unrelated talks back to back, the floor is then opened for questions from an engaged and intrepid audience. (That's you!)

We're excited to deliver this talk in conjunction with EcoFest Kaipatiki, 10 days of fun, inspiring eco-events and activities run by the Kaipatiki Project.

Jerome Partington - Sustainability manager, Jasmax and Dr Alys Longley - Fluid City Project, Auckland University.

Our speakers deliver 20-minute talks back to back, followed by a free-flowing Q&A session. Zeffer Cider Company will once again be quenching our thirst, accompanied by delicious edibles from Honeytrap catering.

Can't wait to see you there! Don't miss out!
