Event description

Join this event in-person at our Sydney campus, or online via a live Zoom webinar. 

The Big Carbon Rethink 

Imagine a world where buildings, clothes, homewares, office supplies, playgrounds, and electronic equipment – all the products we want and interact with – become “carbon sinks” thereby actively reducing atmospheric carbon emissions. For every product you purchase, you'll not only be decarbonising the atmosphere but also ensuring that the carbon remains out of the atmosphere and repurposed in innovative ways. 

Are you ready to revolutionise the way we combat climate change? Join us on an exciting journey of repurposing carbon into stuff that we want and use every day! Together, we can create a sustainable future where production and consumption have positive impact on our planet. 

Event check in opens up from 5pm for a 6pm start.
