Grundfos Energy Saving Island Opening - Presentations and Live Music

So, if you enjoy discussions on environmental sustainability, wish to learn a bit about the subject, watch some pictures from a photographer that works for National Geographic, or simply enjoy music, there is a rather densely packed schedule of events for Grundfos' opening in Second Life today, September 12th.

Grundfos is an environmentally-conscious Danish multinational pump manufacturer, and their approach to be in SL is more to focus on how their technology can help out to solve access to fresh water in undeveloped countries, teach some simple tips on saving energy, water, or limit the carbon emissions, and even raising funds for donating water pumps to Africa, as well as planting some RL trees. It's an experiment that is going to last about 6 months, while several people will present workshops on environmental and sustainability issues, sponsored by Grundfos and see if this model works in SL.

If you're interested, here is the schedule of events for today, as announced on the SL event list:
  • 12 (Noon) to 12:30 - Grundfos Welcome to Second Life
  • 12:45 to 1:00 - Water for Life and Overview of water and other environmental issues we face -- Delia Lake
