But the complete list of keynote speakers is HERE
The venue of the meeting in a not only a beautiful area that looks like paradise but it is also very much important because designed by UNESCO as Biosphere Reserve in 2007, which means an area that demonstrate innovative approaches to conservation and sustainable development.
I will focus on the Noosa Biosphere Reserve soon, because I have been lucky enough to be guided one day around the biosphere by Ben McMullen one of the incredibly passionate group who worked, asked and obtained the Noosa Biosphere Reserve.
But there is more about sustainability and The Global Eco Conference to share, for example the hotel: the Outrigger seated beside the Noosa National Park and just a 500-metre from the cosmopolitan dining and fashion hub of Hastings Street and famed Laguna Bay. Built to best environmental practice, it also heralds a new era of environmentally sustainable resort design – exemplifying how modern developments can exist within the natural beauty and ecology of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Don’t you trust me? Read more about the Outrigger here!
Also during the conference we are following all the tips generally give to other especially we decided to created funny recycled gift using materials and stuff from others conferences.
