As Victoria’s population increases, so does our waste. Landfills are overflowing, recycling is backed up, and our everyday consumables are having significant impacts on our environment.What can be done?

Join award-winning environmental campaigner Tanya Ha and a panel of experts as they discuss the issues of waste, how value can be extracted from it, the innovations already doing this, and what opportunities there are in the future. Of the millions of tonnes of waste generated (353kg per person!), over 60% is diverted for recycling and reuse whilst the rest goes to landfill. However, recent reports have highlighted that warehouses across Australia are filling up with recyclable waste with nowhere for it to go. It is clear that we are faced with a waste crisis, and one that needs to be combatted not only by the various levels of government, but also the individual. Now more than ever, entrepreneurs, businesses and researchers are emerging as leaders in this field, developing innovations that are helping individuals make small changes to their lifestyle and subsequently reducing their impact on the world.

The Game Changer series is jointly presented by Council and Victoria University at venues across Footscray as part of the Footscray University Town joint initiative. Each event is free and open to the whole community. To register your place visit Eventbrite.
