Wednesday 29 July from 12pm to Thursday 30 July 11am

Join the Macquarie University Incubator's latest leaders, innovators and disruptors online event for a discussion about how we invented the ocean plastic crisis.

Organised in partnership with Aly Khalifa, Chief Innovation Officer of Designbox, Aly will discuss how we innovated our way into this problem as we neglected to understand the full context of our actions. To solve it we need an integrated approach.
