    Chris In Asia This October

    We're looking to expand his speaking schedule while there
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, August 17, 2016, 9:20 PM

As many of you know, earlier this year Chris was recruited by the United Nations to participate in one of its Advisory Groups. The mission of this particular group is to award a $1 million grant to a promising innovator in the field of sustainable transportation.

In April, the Group, made up of high-ranking officials and experts from around the globe, convened its for first meeting at the UN's headquarters in New York:

Its next meeting is taking place in Hong Kong over October 7-9th.

While Chris is out there, we'd like to put his time in Asia to its fullest use. After all, he doesn't get over there all that often.

So if you're one of our Asia-based readers and would be interested in having Chris speak to audiences in your country, please let us know by clicking here.

For those interested in booking Chris to speak, we'll need you to handle the funding, planning and marketing on your end. So please, no "wish-based" invitations (we get those all the time). But if you indeed can secure a venue, get an audience there, and offer an appropriate speaking fee + travel coverage, we will coordinate closely with you to get Chris there when you want him.

And in particular, given our large readership in Australia, we're hoping we can get Chris down there during this trip (though, of course, we'll do our best to get him anywhere the Peak Prosperity message can help make an impact for positive change.)

We'll keep folks updated here as any plans firm up. Chris is hoping for the chance to meet as many of you as possible in person while he's in Asia!

    Awesome!

    I’m living in Australia now and if Chris makes it as far as the shores of Australia you can bet I’ll find a way to make it to an event.
    Sad to say I’m way too busy at the moment to plan something myself, but if anybody else can spearhead efforts I’m happy to play a role.

    PS, Permaculture

    PS – I wonder if the permaculture community, which is quite developed in Australia, would have an interest in coordinating something. I don’t know too many people but I can try sending a couple e-mails out and seeing if I get any bites.

    Permaculture Convergence in Perth, Oct 2-5

    Would be great to get Chris over to Oz.  

    As it happens, Perth is hosting – for the first time – the Asia Pacific Permaculture Convergence in early October, which is the major regional get together for permaculture types.  I just finished my Permaculture Design Certificate with Ross Mars, who is the local coordinator of the event.  The event will include many of the heavy hitters in permaculture, including David Holmgren one of its originators. Others include Graham Bell from Scotland and a video link up with Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition Towns movement.  See details here – http://www.apc13.org.  

    I don't know if Chris' schedule could accommodate these dates but if so, it would be an amazing opportunity to be part of the conversation.  Not sure about speakers fees and travel costs etc but if there was interest, happy to connect Chris with Ross Mars to discuss participation.  Would need to be organised quickly as many of the speaking slots have already been finalised.  However, for someone of Chris' caliber, I'm sure some arrangement could be made.

    Cheers Jeff

    Innovative Transport

    At present i have discovered that the speed of light is dependent on μ0 and ε0,. 

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_permeability

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_permittivity

    The fact is that these "Constants " must change in a gravitational field, because the speed of light changes. 

    Now, if Sir Roger Penrose is correct and Reality is deeply mathematical (I came to the same conclusion separately, although I am no peer of Sir Roger) then if we change the dependent variable,  gravity must yield to μ0 And ε0 if they are manipulated. 

    Getting to grips with  gravity would be a transport revolution. 

    Now, how to manipulate ε0 and/or μ0?

    I trust you will be making mention of the role of Cold Fusion.

    Maybe a face to face podcast with Satyajit Das?

    I don't see gravity as we

    I don't see gravity as we know it, lasting for much longer Arthur, what with all the unacknowledged " transport" in the skies.

    Hong Kong/Shenzhen PPers

    We have a kind individual willing to handle the production of a speaking event for Chris in Shenzhen, which is the Chinese province right across the border from Hong Kong.

    He can handle securing a venue for Sunday Oct 9th and doing some basic marketing for the event, but he doesn't have much capital. Chris is willing to heavily discount his normal speaking fee, but getting to Shenzhen requires obtaining a Chinese visa, extending his trip longer, and possibly turning down other opportunities — so it's not a costless endeavor for him.

    That said, we'd love for Chris to speak in mainland China. That's a massive untapped market for Peak Prosperity — and in some ways, we think the Chinese may be more open to our message vs the sclerotic consumption-obsessed mindset of much of the West. So we're hoping to find a way to make this happen.

    If you live in Hong Kong or Shenzhen, and can help contribute support to this event — be it money or marketing muscle — please let us know by clicking here. Perhaps your company might be interested in sponsoring the event. Any ideas are fair game.

    Hoping, as a community, we can work together to make this happen!

    Any Luck?

    Any luck getting venues set up for Chris in Hong Kong and mainland China, Adam?  Just curious.

    Chris Speaking In Shenzhen on Oct 9th

    來了解為什麼很多的錢並不意味著大量的財富

    明白為什麼人民幣將比美元使你更加富有

    Good news! While on his Hong Kong trip, Chris is going to cross the border into China and give a public talk in Shenzhen this Sunday, Oct 9.

    Details on the event, which starts with cocktails at 5pm can be found by clicking here.

    And for those who use WeChat (which apparently everybody in China uses for everything), you can register for the event using this QR code:

    If you live in the area, we hope to see you there!
