Last weekend it was the Love Earth Gathering. This weekend it’s the bigger and broader Greenfest, being held at Brisbane’s Southbank – starting at noon on Friday afternoon with world renowned ecologist Dr Jane Goodall. The Piazza at Southbank will also be host to a series of other speakers across the entire weekend, covering issues from housing to energy to transport to business. I’ll be chairing a session on the Sunday morning from 9.30 – 11.00 on the topic that is the one most in our faces every day of the week – Food!
For a bit of variety, this weekend in Brisbane also sees a couple of major multicultural events. On Saturday at the Mount Gravatt showgrounds, it’s EidFest, celebrating Queensland’s Muslim communities and cultures. Pakistani politician and former test cricket captain Imran Khan is appearing as a speaker. On the Sunday, the Roma Street parklands will host the Queensland Multicultural Festival.
