Waitetuna School, Raglan – 18th December 2017

It was particularly special for me to talk at this rural school.  Not only did they have some brilliant thinkers there, but one of them turned out unexpectedly to be the son of a long lost friend of mine.  I had last seen him when he was only a few weeks old. What a fantastic reunion and what a lot of inventive plans he had to revolutionise how we use plastic.
