"My Technology Can Save The World", Dana Centre, May 2010

I was part of small team responsible for organising a dialogue event at the Dana Centre, based around the concept of geo-engineering.We wanted to explore the which, how and when of geo-engineering. How might the sometimes sci-fi and far-fetched ideas cropping up in the media could actually be put into practice?

We also decided to borrow the TV show Dragons Den’s format (although this did get less and less overt as our fear of getting sued or at least shouted at by the BBC increased) to give it some pep, steal some of their publicity draw and to let those that turned up know what they’re in for and encourage them to get questioning the science.

The resulting event was a success, and the Dana Centre have since borrowed the format a number of their own events.
