On June 7, 2011, Synchronicity Earth held a lunch for women from many different vocational backgrounds and one common thread: an interest for conservation and environmental issues. Our ‘Home Eco-logics’ lunch at the Louise Blouin Foundation featured a Slow Food menu created and cooked by top British chef Angela Hartnett, showcasing locally sourced UK food and produce that runs the risk of being lost due to commercial pressures.
Our 100 guests pre-selected the theme they wished to discuss over lunch (options included education, food and international development, up-cycled fashion, biodiversity and conservation) and were seated alongside over thirty conservation and sustainability experts who were on hand to offer their expertise, passion and enthusiasm.
The great food and lively discussions at the tables was topped off by incredibly motivating key-note speakers. We were honoured to have Julia Marton-Lefèvre, Director General of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Lucy Siegle, author of To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing out the World, Livia Firth, Co-founder and Director of Eco-Age and Ann Finlayson, Director of Sustainability and Environmental Education (SEEd).
