the bit where we COMMUNICATE COMPLEX INFORMATION TO CATALYSE SYSTEMic CHANGE.
Not somebody else’s story on the theoretical value of a
circular economy but through our own story actioning it.
We told you up above that our founders successfully created Australia’s first circular economy pilot project but what we didn’t tell you was that our founders are two sisters who had a big hairy audacious goal to FUNDAMENTALLY prove that there was a different and better way to do things…
So armed with this goal (and not much else) the journey began.
Within less than 18 months our founders have been invited to keynote and speak at over a dozen national conferences and thought leadership events including VIVID Sydney, QODE Queensland, The World Circular Economy Forum Finland, The World Science Festival Brisbane, Waste and Resources Perth, The Global Ideas Festival Melbourne, and many more.
Through personal experience and action our founders deliver presentations, workshops, and educational content that provide a clear and engaging vision for the circular economy which when brought to life through relatable anecdotes, endearing authenticity and novel ways of thinking not only inspire audiences but also evoke a clear path toward circular economy action.
We are collaborating with the Griffith Business School to deliver a 3 day Transformative Circular Economy Leadership Masterclass.
This course allows participants to understand the foundational knowledge of CE, global trends in CE, local policy and legislation that facilitates CE, and importantly the mind shift and communication skills required to facilitate the transformation of the economy from linear to circular.
Who for: A course for people who want to increase their influence in organisations and the sector they are involved with.
Where: South Bank Campus, Brisbane
When: December 4th-6th
Duration: 3 days
Mode: Face to face and online
Accreditation: Potential masters micro credential option available (10 credit points) for an extra day of course contact. Details and cost to be confirmed.
Course facilitators: Ashleigh and Jaine Morris, Dr Rob Hales
Guest presenters: Ken Webster, Former head of innovation, Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
The key learning objectives of the course are:
Demonstrate knowledge of circular economy principles and business models acknowledging the foundational theories (cradle to cradle, biomimicry, performance economy and indigenous know-how and values… and more)
Demonstrate and understand the environmental, social and economic value in a circular economy and the means to which the value can cascade and be shared
Evidence the ability to practice systems thinking coupled with circular economy principles (circular systems thinking) to identify opportunities to create transformative change towards circularity
Articulate the mind shift from a linear view of the world to one that is circular. Think, design and do with the end in mind
Articulate a personal leadership approach that you will use to facilitate more circularity in the complex world in which you have influence
