One of my very good friends, Ruben Anderson is giving a talk on Sustainable Marketing by Design. Ruben is an amazing guy, and has been a friend since we first met in our early days at UVic in 1989.
Here’s his bio according to the event site:
Ruben Anderson currently works for Metro Vancouver, helping integrate sustainable behaviour into multifamily buildings. Ruben consulted on future-proofed locally resilient systems for the City of Vancouver’s Sustainability Group and Planning Department, as well as for BC Housing and Industry Canada. He recently co-taught Ecological Perspectives on Design at the Emily Carr University. Ruben won the Cascadia Green Building Council’s Closing the Loop Energy Award in 2006, for a passive shading system designed for local manufacture and the use of Cradle to Cradle materials.
It is being put on by New Media BC, and should prove to be a great event.
