David Easton at PechaKucha 20x20 - Albany, California - January 30th 2015

Join us to hear David Easton presenting 20 slides for 20 seconds each at PechaKucha Albany Volume 4. The theme of the night will be "Resolutions" (fitting for the beginning of the New Year) and David will be talking about his resolution to quit incorporating Portland cement into our built environment. David will show how the Romans and Egyptians were able to build durable structures lasting thousands of years without Portland cement, a notorious contributor to CO2 emissions and climate change. But as with any resolution, the doing is often harder than the saying.

PechaKucha 20x20, if you're not familiar, is a presentation format where 20 slides are shown for exactly 20 seconds each, advancing automatically as a speaker gives a presentation. PechaKucha Nights are events held all over the world (700 cities so far) that offer a casual setting for exploring new ideas and making new connections.

PechaKucha is Japanese for "the sound of conversation" and we encourage you to come hear the sound of David's conversation - resolution - about sustainable building.
