At the in­au­gu­ral Healthy Liv­ing Show held in the Viaduct Events Cen­tre from Novem­ber 2-4, El­e­ment is to launch Game Chang­ers, a fas­ci­nat­ing se­ries of speed talks from the most in­ter­est­ing peo­ple in its or­bit. A di­verse line up of in­spi­ra­tional pre­sen­ters have just 20 min­utes, and 20 slides to present their world and their spe­cial way of in­ter­act­ing with it. There will be 12 speak­ers pre­sent­ing the Game Chang­ers for­mat over the Show. These are New Zealand char­ity bosses Barry Coates (Ox­fam) and Chris Howe (WWF), eco-ar­chi­tects Tony Watkins (ver­nac­u­lar ar­chi­tec­ture spe­cial­ist) and Jerome Part­ing­ton (liv­ing build­ing ex­pert), writer and TV per­son­al­ity Graeme Hill, Biogro or­gan­ics chief Michelle Glo­gau, natur­opath Lani Lopez, per­ma­cul­ture ex­pert Finn Mack­esy, Green­peace head hon­cho Bunny McDiarmid, in­ter­na­tional ocean rower and can­cer re­search cham­pion Danny Sunkel, me­dia for so­cial change spe­cial­ist (and El­e­ment co-founder) Gavin Healy and Dr Ron McDowall, the in­cred­i­ble Kiwi called in to clean up the most toxic en­vi­ron­ments on earth. The Game Chang­ers ini­tia­tive doesn’t end with the close of the show: El­e­ment in­tends to turn it into a monthly event. Watch this space.
