Event description

Drawing from the global crisis due to a linear resource economy, the lecture on “Towards a Circular Revolution” will explore the transformative paradigm shift towards sustainability and resource efficiency in our global economic systems. This lecture delves into the principles and practices of the circular economy, emphasising the importance of reimagining how we produce, consume, and dispose of goods. The audience will gain insights into the economic, environmental, and social benefits of embracing circularity, fostering a deeper understanding of the pivotal role individuals, businesses, and policymakers play in steering the world towards a regenerative and sustainable future.


This talk is one in a series of Lunchtime Lectures hosted at John Curtin Gallery. The Lunchtime Lectures series invites speakers from across disciplines to share their own research, practices and context in response to the exhibition programming. A mid-week opportunity to explore ideas and stir conversation in a welcoming and collegial environment.
