Sir Tim Smit on how ‘muscular localism’ could save our planet
By Blue Earth Summit
“Despite its bonkersness, I believed other people would want it to come true. That’s how the Eden Project was built. And that’s how we can change the world.”
Our guest on the Blue Earth podcast this week is Sir Tim Smit, the co-founder of the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall. We’re delighted to welcome Tim as a keynote speaker at this year’s summit and in this episode he teases us with what he’ll be talking about when he joins us in October.
He also tells host Laura Nesbitt why he believes muscular localism is the way forward when it comes to creating a healthy, happy planet. He touches on the future of agriculture - plus, why he believes 3D printing could put an end to supply chains.
