Pecha Kucha Night Presents the Green Giveaway


Tickets to Pecha Kucha Night, drinks at Chambar, a water saving kit and music from Christopher Smith!

Bob has written lots on Pecha Kucha (and even presented!) before. It’s one of those events I have heard nothing but good things about and always wanted to attend but haven’t yet – usually because it sells out. If you’re not in the loop, it’s pronounced PEH-CHA KOO-CHA, and the very special green-themed edition on Wednesday, June 23 “will feature 13 local instigators that are on stage with 20 slides x 20 seconds to deliver inspiration and insight on the broad topic of sustainability and Vancouver’s ambition to be the greenest city by 2020.”

Tickets are $10 so if you are keen to go, it may be a good idea to purchase them now because the inspiring line-up – including Ken Lum, the artist behind that incredible East Van Cross and Ernesto Gomez, founder of Nuba – is likely to ensure a sell-out event.

Christopher Smith’s debut album, The Beckon Call.

Vancouver is Awesome has three sets of this fabulous giveaway to … giveaway. (Which means that your odds are good. Better than normal, anyway.) Each winner receives two tickets to the event on Thursday, June 23 as well as a $20 coupon courtesy of Chambar, two water saving kits and two copies of Christopher Smith‘s The Beckon Call!

I could definitely use a water-saving kit.

Personally, I feel like I am really conscious about and aware of recycling. I rinse (regardless of how foul and moldy the contents may be) jars and containers for the blue box and cringe when I see recyclable containers in the garbage. I will admit that I (more than occasionally) do indulge in two showers a day, which is totally unnecessary and undoubtedly wasteful.

To enter, please leave a comment below detailing one good and one not-so-good thing you do in relation to the environment. Enter as many times as you like. Contest closes on Monday, June 21 at 5:00 pm. Winners will be picked at random and contacted via email for confirmation.

Good luck!
