Green pioneer and journalist Colin Beavan will be one of the speakers at our upcoming PSFK Conference 2010, taking place on April 9th.

In 2007, Colin and his family undertook a challenging yearlong lifestyle experiment, attempting to live in New York City and have no environmental impact. A blog documented his progress, and a film and book were made detailing the experience and leanings.

PSFK talked with Colin to see what he’s been doing lately.

What are you working on right now?

I’m directing an effort to get citizens directly involved in designing a way of life which is both better for us and better for the planet. The current paradigm is predicated on the idea that the well being of people is based on the amount of resources we use–the consumption paradigm. That’s wrong. Using more resources does not necessarily make us happier. What does? That is a question I believe the entire planet needs to be involved in answering.
