A week of shuttling back and forth between London-based organisations, for all sorts of reasons - including the Impetus Trust (which is in Flaxman Terrace, a building or two along from the UCL Bartlett School, where I did my MPhil in the early 1970s, when it was the School of Environmental Studies), Forum for the Future's Christmas party, the First Magazine Awards for Responsible Capitalism (where their website seems well behind the times), SustainAbility (for an Engaging Stakeholders webinar on integrated reporting, where I duo'd with Jessica Fries of the International Integrated Reporting Committee) and IIED's new building in Gray's Inn Road, for their Christmas party.  IIED's building is very impressive--spent some time talking to the architect, Phyllida Mills, of Peynore & Prasad.

A real sense of the London Sustainability Cluster the last couple of weeks, which is encouraging since we are now working fairly intensive on our planned TEDxTHAMES even on 'Sustainable Capitalism' for next May.  On the 30th of November, Sam and I dropped in on a gathering TEDx curators in a pub in King's Cross, en route to a Guardian Sustainable Business one-year-old celebration at the Clerkenwell Kitchen, just around the corner from where we housed Environmental Data Services for many years, in Bowling Green Lane.
