Forum aims to find 'eco heroes'

Logan Eco Forum 2019 guest speaker Jon Dee

The next generation of the City of Logan’s environmental heroes will be unearthed at a forum in Beenleigh on Saturday, September 7.

Logan City Council’s annual free Eco Forum encourages participants to explore connections to local habitats and ways they can improve the environment.

This year’s Eco Forum is themed: How do we create a city of eco heroes?

Helping to answer that question will be some of Australia’s leading environment experts who will give talks and participate in workshops.

Speakers at the event include:

Jon Dee – the founder of Planet Ark, National Tree Day, One Tree Per Child and Do Something charities.

Tom Allen – the founder and chief executive officer of Impact Boom, a company that assists entrepreneurs and innovators to pursue their ideas.

Tanya Pritchard – A conservation scientist with more than 25 years’ experience in studying threatened species and endangered ecosystems.

Tony Sharp – the founder of Logan-based electronic waste recycling centre SubStation33.

The 2019 Eco Forum runs from 10am to 3.30pm at the Beenleigh Events Centre, corner of Crete and Kent streets.
