Innovation Towards Christmas as Unusual

Last night we celebrated a 6heads Green Christmas at the Innovation Warehouse.

We ate sustainable nibbles kindly prepared by Handsome Andy & Handsome Will.

We drank sustainable wine.

We exchanged gifts in our sustainable secret santa.

We cycled to power our Christmas tree lights.

We discussed the impact of mince pies.

We considered alternative transport to reduce our footprint.

We upcycled old City shirts into funky knickers.

We hacked toys with old decapitated ones.

We were brain-noodled by Mike Tennant from Imperial College, with a bucket of sand and a systems thinking analogy (Read about the Sorites Paradox to understand what he was on about).

We were inspired to give actions rather than gifts by Vanessa King from Action for Happiness.

We’re extremely happy at how the event turned out and would like to thank everyone who made this possible.

Our sponsors: Brook Lyndhurst, Mattinson Partnership, Sony, Amida Recruitment, and the Imperial College Centre for Environmental Policy.
