Seats are still available for the charity dinner, which takes place on the evening of February 19 at the JW Marriott Hong Kong, following the conclusion of that day's Media360Asia conference.

Harada is a French-Japanese researcher and entrepreneur best known for quitting his day job and rushing to the Gulf of Mexico after the BP oil spill to develop his Protei sailing technology—an open-source 'drone' that allows for efficient cleanup of both oil and plastics from the sea (see video below).

Presented in association with GroupM and Omnicom Media Group, the Media360Asia Charity Dinner aids Mother's Choice, an organisation that provides and promotes loving, nurturing care for babies and children needing permanent homes, and for single girls and their families facing crisis pregnancies.

Book your place at the dinner

Table (10 seats): US$3,500
Individual seat: US$400

All profits go directly to Mother's Choice.
