The Sustainable Cities Round Table on
Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Tuesday 12 August night, 6 – 8pm
Copeland Theatre, Economics & Commerce Building
University of Melbourne
RSVP by Friday 8 August to firstname.lastname@example.org
The challenge of climate change presents many opportunities for new sustainable ventures. Entrepreneurs working in this space are able to creatively develop innovative solutions that have environmental, social and economic benefits, yet like all entrepreneurial ventures it is not without risks. At this Sustainable Cities Round Table we will showcase examples of proactive entrepreneurs who have taken this step and bravely gone where no mainstream business has gone before!
The evening will feature a series of short presentations, musical interludes, networking opportunities and more!

Chris has just made a beautiful new cutting table that just fits into our canvas storage room. It’s cold in there, but nice. The fabric is a great vintage stripe that will make into a pannier for you to ride around with soon.
We’ve finally drawn the prize winner for a commuter pannier from our competition the ran at the Going Green Expo 08 and the HomeBiz Expo 07. We’ll be contacting our winner and sending out a pannier.Read More
Floyd did a great job in picking the winning slip of paper. Thanks Floyd.

1. It’s made in Australia using at least 70% reclaimed materials2. It looks 100% better than any other pannier3. It has the most innovative attachment system on the market – made for your comfort4. It has a comfy shoulder strap that has a great hideaway position when you ride away.5. A front pocket big enough for your wallet, keys, phone – all the little things you don’t want to loose6. a large interior – fits an A3 folder7. inside is lined with a pvc offcut, this gives you your second line of defence against water invasion8. 9. 10. a whole lot of other reasons I can’t think of right nowRead More
Well here are a few pictures I’m very glad to post. These pannier colours will be the initial available ones, with more to follow in future – but these are here to stay for a little while. First in-person opportunity to buy will be Going Green Expo in only 2 weeks time.
