|The inaugural Sustainable Future Collective Forum “Getting Wasted” at the University of Auckland on 18th July|
The event was hosted by University of Auckland’s Sustainable Future Collective; a club dedicated to opening up the conversation of sustainability and making it part of our daily lives.
The evening covered a vast range of themes, including Plastic / marine waste, Minimising / zero waste, Food waste, Sharing / circular economy and Sustainability. There were fantastic speakers and a panel facilitator from varied backgrounds.
Niki Harre – Associate Dean Sustainability at the University of Auckland facilitated the panel discussion with Amanda Chapman – Founder of Griffith Gardens Community Fridge, Zero Waste Blogger (Amanda in Waste-Free Land) and Tiny House builder, Emily Frost – Science Advisor at Our Seas Our Future, Ryan Dyment – Co-Founder of the Toronto Tool Library and Sharing Depot, and Mark Neal – Waste Minimisation Coordinator at the University of Auckland.
The GLWA products were well sought after by students, as they are not only reusable products, but also very affordable!
