Podcast: Circular Sydney

This is a podcast series develop as part of the 2018 Ellen McArthur Foundation Disruptive Innovation Festival.

The podcast design was created by Drs Melissa Edwards and Paul Brown from the UTS Centre for Business and Social Innovation who facilitate a research project on the Circular Economy. The podcast was developed, created and edited by UTS BCII  graduates Hannah Mullen and Sophia Chrysanthos.

It is a 5-part series in which we explore the topic:

If we've known about all things Circular Economy for decades, why has adoption into policy and business practice taken much longer? Businesses in Australia have been driving the change, but now the landscape is changing as new policy frameworks are being developed by state governments). When collaboration is key, we talk to leading researchers, policy makers and businesses to find out how we might encourage a common approach, within and across industries, to transition to a circular economy. Can we have a Circular Sydney?
