Davis, CA Hub Culture has launched a Global Pavilion at the Governors Global Climate Summit 3 at the University of California Davis, running from 15-17 November 2010. The initiative includes a collaboration group online at HubCulture.com, a 10,000 sqf Pavilion alongside the event, and social media interviews with many of the Summit's leading personalities.

The GGCS 3, hosted by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, promises compelling climate conversations from the top leaders of local, regional, national and international entities, as well as those from academia, business and nonprofit sectors. Over 2000 attendees are discussing the building blocks of the green economy. Hub Culture has once again been invited to collaborate by using the Pavilion concept and interface as a platform for social media interviews with a number of leaders, ranging from Deepak Chopra and Harrison Ford to visiting students from Nigeria and Governors from sub-national entities around the planet.

The summit will continue to broaden partnerships through an increased understanding of our unique environmental and economic challenges as we continue to grow a clean, green economy. GGCS3 serves as a forum to learn best practices, share ideas and collaborate on projects to see first-hand how our actions at the subnational level can drive national and international climate negotiations.

As a part of the Global Pavilion, Hub Culture is pleased to announce a creative partnership between Zabludowicz Collection featuring Finnish artist Antti Laitinen. In the summer of 2010, Antti Laitinen constructed a vessel made of bark collected from the forest floor in Finland and sailed it across the Baltic Sea from the northern part of Finland to the shores of Estonia. His resulting video installation tracks this simple sea voyage, making a statement about mans' relationship to nature in the process.

Primary partners at the GGCS3 include the Aga Khan Development Network, BMW Group, Chevron, Cisco and others.
