Doing the Do at the Do Lectures 2011

Mickey-Smith-Do-Lectures

I was very excited and honoured to be invited back to the Do Lectures this year with my reporter hat on. After my first experience of Do in 2009 I knew what was in store, but that didn’t make it any less thrilling to be there. Again I met some incredibly inspiring people and have basically been bashing away at the keyboard ever since, trying to convey as much of the exhileration as possible. Have a look at these posts on TreeHugger.

The Do Lectures are held in a very beautiful green field on Fforest farm in Wales, where you stay in amazing Buckminster Fuller style geodesic domes with stunning views and hang out in the old crofter’s cottage bar.This is definitely an outdoorsy, back to nature, adventurous approach to an ideas conference that focuses on sustainability and creativity both in word and deed. The Do Team describe the event as being a cross between “TED talks, Burning man and Where the Wild things are…A Glastonbury for the mind”, no less!
