TECH SHIFT EXPONENTIAL 1-4PM Concert Theatre, The Concourse

The world is changing faster than it ever has before, as we face a difficult future if we continue to inhabit the Planet in the way we are accustomed to. Change is inevitable and brings new opportunities forcing a rethink of current challenges and to seek solutions that are inherent in the problem. Exponential developments in one area creates opportunities for innovation in others. Join MC Bernie Hobbs and hear from some young innovative pioneers finding solutions to these problems, the revolution has begun…

ENERGY REVOLUTION

Our future is renewable! It is time to get serious and start thinking about cities, communities and businesses getting Off the Grid. The City of Sydney Deputy Lord Mayor Jess Miller shares the inside story on how the City is tracking to its Renewable Energy Master Plan to have 100% of the City’s electricity, heating and cooling from renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind and energy from waste, by 2030.

Ross Harding Founder of Finding Infinity views a world powered by renewable energy as inevitable and despite being an engineer believes that it is people, not technology that will bring about the rate of change required. In his spare time he puts on sustainable solar powered music and talk-festivals Off the Grid in Melbourne and London and wants to bring it to Sydney.

HUMAN REVOLUTION

As humans develop technology which is advancing exponentially we are improving the lives of millions in ways beyond comprehension of the past.

Sara Rickards is an energetic sustainability ninja who really cares about our planet and has a multitude of ingenious solutions including Re:Purpose for Good which turns waste plastic and e-waste into robotic prosthetic limbs.

Katerina Kimmorley, Co-founder of Pollinate Energy had her a-ha moment while flying over Delhi during the world's biggest blackout and it inspired her to make a difference. Pollinate Energy is an Australian charity which provides solar lighting to hundreds of thousands of the world's poorest in India, helping to change their lives in the process.

RESOURCE REVOLUTION
