WCEF side event 2021 - Beyond the Lab - Activating the Circular Economy in Australia

The transition to a more circular economy has truely moved beyond the lab in Australia. During this event we will explore a few examples of how governments, industry, not-for-profits and academia are collaborating to contextualise international best practices and turn concepts into action.

This event will focus on circularity in Oceania and specifically, Australia. It will build on from the previous year's WCEF event to showcase activities and projects that are beyond the lab. In this panel session, examples and case studies across government and academia will be presented to showcase how the circular economy has been mobilised in the Australian context, and what key the challenges and opportunities are arising from collaborative solutions.

Professor Usha Iyer-Raniga is at the School of Property and Construction Management at RMIT University. Usha is co-leading the One Planet Network’s Sustainable Buildings and Construction Programme (SBC), United Nations 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (UN 10FYP SCP) aligned with Sustainable Development Goal 12, as well as the newly formed Integrated Platform for Circular Economy, Climate Resilience, and Energy.  During this event we will explore a few examples of how governments, industry, not-for-profits and academia are collaborating to contextualise international best practices and turn concepts into action.
