Bournda Environmental Education Centre has been hosting the World Environment Day Dinner on June 5th for many years and has established a tradition of informative and challenging presentations.
This year is the 36th Bournda EEC World Environment Day dinner and the EEC is thrilled with the news that the speaker at this year’s dinner on Wednesday June 5th is Geoff Cousins, a businessman and author, a former Howard government adviser and prominent advertising man who has been involved in several high profile, successful environmental campaigns in Australia. He has been involved in the campaign to reject Gunn’s pulp mill in Tasmania and joined the campaign against the Woodside petroleum project near James Price Point in north-west Western Australia.
Geoff was one of the most successful advertising men of the 1980s, and was chairman of the George Patterson advertising agency. His corporate life includes a stint as CEO of Optus, in addition to positions on ten public company boards ranging from PBL to Telstra.
As well as a hugely successful business career, Geoff is a community leader and art-lover, he is the founding chair of the kids’ cancer charity Starlight Foundation and Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
Ethics and taking a stand are things that have long concerned him. He was the foundation chair of the St James Ethics Centre, an independent, not-for-profit organisation serving as a catalyst and enabler for society to think, debate and act in good conscience, particularly in the face of uncertainty and ambiguity.
The presentation that Geoff will deliver covers some of the environmental work that he has done over the years, which will no doubt be an inspiration to those attending.
The dinner, this year on World Environment Day, Wednesday June 5th is at the Bega Showground Pavilion with doors opening at 6pm for a 7pm start.
Tickets can be purchased, at a cost each of $30, from Candelo Books (Bega) with a cash sale or through Bournda Environmental Education Centre, phone 6494 5009. Why not get a table of 8 together with your friends? For further details please contact Doug Reckord, Principal, Bournda EEC – 6494 5009
