The earth is collapsing. It seems inevitable — or does it? There are groups in Shanghai working to make a change in 2019, however minor it might seem, and this week is particularly busy in the save-the-world community.
First off, Green Initiatives is hosting guest speaker Dr. Srinivas Yanamandra from the New Development Bank
tonight (Thursday, January 10) about the role of Artificial Intelligence in society. Is it an existential risk? After that, a TED Talk by Kai-Fu Lee about how AI might save our humanity.
That’s followed by Green Initiatives’ ten-year anniversary, celebrating 3,650 days of recycling projects, networking events and action campaigns with a free event
(but must RSVP) at URBN Boutique Hotel
on Friday evening.
Then on Saturday, M Talks China has an environmental-themed talk
— food waste — at Glam with the founder of Element Fresh
, Scott Minoie, as well as reps from Collective Responsibly and Starbucks. Yes, The Bucks will join. What do they have to say about plastic straws??? Talk is 100rmb to get in. No wasted change.
