Wednesday, 20 September 2017

Belgian entrepreneur, best-selling author and a key speaker at the Tesla World event, Gunter Pauli, will demonstrate how his ‘Blue Economy’ model can create jobs, build business, and drive sustainability in South Australia, at a free public lecture at the University of Adelaide tomorrow.

Gunter Pauli will speak at the University of Adelaide's The Braggs lecture theatre and will launch The Blue Economy 3.0, from 11.30am–1.30pm, Thursday 21 September.
