The way we use our resources has got to change. From plastics clogging our oceans to the pollution in our skies warming the planet, we need a whole-of-systems change when it comes to reducing and managing our waste. Jo Taranto from Good for the Hood (and the War on Waste Series) will share some practical examples of how households, neighbourhoods and councils are changing their waste management systems.

The host for the conversation series is Dr Amanda Cahill, CEO of The Next Economy. Amanda has spent nearly 25 years supporting changemakers across the world to improve individual and community wellbeing. Her work at The Next Economy is to support communities to strengthen local economies in ways that are good for people and planet. In this way, her work touches on many of the themes in 2040 – climate change, food and energy systems, waste, and how the economic and political systems operate to both facilitate and block change.
