About this Event

Looking for an oasis amidst Web Summit for dinner and drinks with featured speakers?

Do you need to make sure you eat well and clean (yes this is a vegan and vegetarian-friendly dinner)?

Join Badass Summit cohost, SEM Rush consort and Grit Daily Sr. Editor, Stewart Rogers along with Grit Daily Executive Editor Jordan French, CNET founder Halsey Minor, IBM, TechCrunch, and 28 dinner guests for a thought provoking dinner discussion on technology's impact on all things living and the environment.

10% of dinner proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Fund (total to be announced at the dinner) initiatives furthering food security and sustainable livelihoods.

If we raise enough, we'll adopt a blue whale. (Blue whales were almost hunted to extinction before governments united to ban commercial whaling. In 2019, there are only 10,000 to 20,000 blue whales. Blue whales remain at risk from pollution, ship propellers, and bycatch.) If we do adopt a blue whale, male or female, we will name it Stewart.

Surprise guests working on ocean ecology, air quality and sustainable cities will join you in contributing to the Badass Summit dinner, hosted by Grit Daily.

Dinner questions to ponder:

What's one unconventional wisdom about conservation that's just plain wrong?

How has biodiversity loss impacted you directly?

Dinner includes:

1 flute of Portuguese Natural sparkling wine, per person, with a toast from investor and philanthropist Peter Crane.

½ couvert (foccacia, olive oil e olives)

1 food entree (½ combo) --

ÁRABE: pão árabe, húmus, coalhada, falafel, molho tajine, taboulé, shawarma com cebola frita

VEGANO: arepa sem queijo, guacamole com pico-de-gallo, ceviche banana, mandioca frita, saladinha do dia

Drinks (white and red wine, beer, sangria, soft drinks, water) in an open bar during dinner.

Two mini desserts, black chocolate mousse and white tapioca cream, to top it off.

And in traditional European fashion, coffee / tea, known as the "coffee layer" before we head downstairs for the official after party.

Yes, you heard that right: Todo Mundo has graciously afforded you a two-hour open bar (beer, wine, but also water and soft drinks).
