Join us at Vivid Sydney for an intimate conversation event about the potential of waste with inventor Professor Veena Sahajwalla. Chatting with Master Storyteller Nathan Scolaro, Veena shares her extraordinary story and dazzling science mind, inviting us to reimagine the rubbish in our homes and communities.

Veena is revolutionising how we think about waste, and what it is capable of. She is a champion of circular economies, and through the UNSW SMaRT Centre, has invented globally renowned, eco-friendly technologies for converting waste into products like steel and ceramics.

Veena’s passion for “waste discoveries” is infectious, and she wants to share that excitement with you. She shows us how we can shape circular economies in our communities to be part of the waste revolution.

This conversation, with plenty of time for questions, will  provide a space that is warm, inspiring and full of ideas to take home and action.

Professor Veena Sahajwalla is featured in Dumbo Feather issue 69, exploring Systems Change.
