Proposed SXSW Eco Panel to Feature Co-Directors
Want to talk trash with The Center Co-Directors Pliny Fisk (Pliny the Grouch) and Gail Vittori, along with Professor Dumpster of the Dumpster Project, UC Berkeley's Liz Ogbu and the University of Texas School of Architecture Center for Sustainable Design's Barbara Brown-Wilson? Vote for this group and their discussion on living in 1% of the space of an average American to be one of this year's SXSW Eco panels!
SXSW Eco has launched its 2014 PanelPicker, a platform for selecting conference panels through popular voting. The Co-Directors are panelists on a proposed panel titled "The new one percent - 33 square feet of pure bliss," which will discuss Huston-Tillotson University's Dumpster Project. The project aims to answer "Can one have a good life in 1% of the space, using 1% of the resources and generating 1% of the waste of the average American?" Jeff Wilson, or Professor Dumpster as he is commonly known, leads the effort and has been living in a dumpster since February 2014 to determine answers. The Center Co-Directors serve as consultants on the project. Vote now to ensure this panel becomes an official SXSW Eco 2014 selection!
