To celebrate the “power of we”, sustainability in Perth, and all the good things Perth Green Drinks been facilitated in the last 5 years (that’s right 5 years!),the November event will see past speakers telling us where they are now and how their projects evolved.
Wilma van Boxtel is an industrial product designer at Deseos Design and lecturer at Central Institute of Technology and Curtin University. She believes design is crucial to moving towards a more sustainable future, as it is allows us to rethink how to deliver products without damaging the world around us or compromising the well being of present and future generations. Wilma is particularly interested in Cradle to Cradle, a biomimetic approach to design that seeks to create efficient, waste-free systems. Wilma started Perth Green Drinks back in 2007!
