#TEDxCT Speaker: Meet David Parry-Davies

David Parry-Davies_TEDxCapeTown

After a successful corporate career, this writer, speaker, host of The Eco-Logic Awards and editor of The Enviropaedia publication turned to his ‘heart's-calling’ in 1997. 

David is extremely passionate about raising public understanding of current environmental challenges; empowering individuals and businesses to adopt more sustainable practices; and encouraging people to re-evaluate their own role and responsibility towards Natures community of life on Earth.

His idea worth spreading focuses on how the Earth is in ecological crisis and that we cannot solve this crisis using the same logic that created it - so it’s time to evolve (our hearts and minds) to become Eco-Logical human beings. 

Meet David at our Salon event on 19 October 2019 at Gugu S’thebe in Langa, where he’ll be sharing more about what gets him out of bed in the morning - healing this beautiful planet Earth.
