Pecha Kucha

Pecha Kucha. Roughly translated from the Japanese, it means “chit-chat.” It is a cool idea, sort of like speed dating for ideas and thinking. You show 20 slides and talk more than for 20 seconds for each. Pecha Kucha nights happen in about 700 cities around the world. More ideas, what a good idea.

The featured talk  on the Pecha Kucha website at the moment is about ethics in the garment industry, particularly the advantages of fair trade and use of organic cotton.  If you have 6 minutes and 40 seconds, check it out at the pecha kucha website.
