In this episode of #AsktheCollective, I answer questions from university students about following their sustainable dreams, design, and waste.
As always, we hope you find these questions and answers useful, gain some new insights, and possibly help catalyze you to take your next step!
00:34 – I want to get into sustainable design, but my professors say that is impractical and it would be too hard to do. What would you recommend?
03:55 – Many countries spend great effort to classify waste, and encourage recycling. However, in China, the waste management practices seem pretty poor. What can I do as a student on campus?
#About the AsktheCollective Series: As a way to engage with you, our audience, we are happy to be kicking off the #AskTheCollective series.
A series built entirely on answering your questions, and through that provide a different level of value to the community of those interested in sustainability or building business models to solve the challenges faced.
It is an open platform, and we hope that through it you will find ways to learn about the challenges faced, but more importantly, we hope that through the answers you will begin to find strategic or tactical insights that help you to move from inspiration to action.
So, keep the questions coming, and if you believe that the series brings value to you, PLEASE subscribe to our channel and tell your friends.
