Armidale Circular Economy Event: Waste as a Resource (Entrepreneurs Hour)

NSW Circular/University of New England Circular Economy Event 1 August: Waste as a Resource (Entrepreneurs Hour)

The NSW Circular Economy Innovation Network is partnering with the University of New England to host an event focused on treating ‘waste as a resource’ within a circular economy.

The event will bring together stakeholders from across industry, business and government in Armidale and the region to UNE on Thursday 1 August. It will introduce the audience to the benefits of a circular economy – locally, across NSW and the rest of Australia – as society aims to be more sustainable.

Special guest presenter – NSW Circular Director and UNSW Sydney Professor Veena Sahajwalla – will share examples of innovative work in waste and the re-use of materials and how this has economic and social benefits.

Professor Sahajwalla will be introduced by Dr Lou Conway – Director, UNE SMART Region Incubator. Her presentation will be followed by a question and answer session facilitated by Michael Sharpe, National Director, Industry, Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC).

The event will be attended by local industry and business leaders, government representatives, researchers and local community groups.

NSW Circular and its key partners, including UNE SMART Region Incubator and AMGC, aim to bring together key stakeholders to accelerate collaborations and opportunities to help build a circular economy to address waste and recycling challenges as well as enhance manufacturing and industry capability.
