Episode 2: No Time to Waste
In this episode we talk to a campaigner who forced a major supermarket to better consider sustainability in its promotions and discover how marketing research can help organisations do it better.
Episode 1 : Trash Talk
Susan Carland is joined by researchers and behaviour change experts from BehaviourWorks Australia – together they talk global waste.
Turning e-waste trash into treasure
The World Economic Forum estimates e-waste to be worth US$62.5 billion annually, but only 20 per cent is recycled through appropriate channels.
Putting health on the table
Drawing on a passion that runs through his family, Dr Sandro Demaio returns to Australia to improve people’s wellbeing – starting in the kitchen.
A flair for international collaboration
With a flair for international collaboration, Sze-yin Tan is advancing clean recycling technologies.
Going back to nature over dengue
Eco solutions may hold the answer to controlling the spread of the mosquito-borne virus in Malaysia.
Selling surfing's soul
The corporate high-performance, merchandise-heavy, social media-driven vision of surfing isn't one shared by many wave riders.
Tracking corporate net zero pledges
Some of Australia's biggest property companies are making ambitious emissions-reduction pledges – but how well are they really doing?
Rethinking plastic to change the system
Although bans on single-use plastic products can be effective, we need to change our mindset on their value.
Episode 15: The ageing population
For the first time in human history, the world's population is rapidly ageing, and in an ageist society we're ill-prepared to handle it. A Different Lens explores the challenges of an ageing population.
Once biters, now shy
Baleen whales were sharp-toothed and ferocious feeders, but have evolved to become gentle filter-feeding giants of the ocean.
What lies beneath
The fires in the Amazon are already a major threat to the environment, and a potentially bigger disaster awaits below the ground. Could we reach the tipping point for climate change?
Turning plastic into fuel
With China no longer accepting Australian waste, an innovative home-grown solution is planned to turn plastic and used tyres into fuel.
Nuclear power versus renewables
Is nuclear energy the right technology for the transitioning Australian energy market?
A river restored runs through it
Pressures of land management and poor waste management have reduced many of the world's rivers to waste dumping grounds.
Greening up the health sector
Work is under way on how to best teach our future health workforce about environmental sustainability and its impacts.
Reframing our future technology fears
Don’t worry, your self-driving car won’t kill you – as long as research focuses on people and society, too.
Understanding the modern consumer
There's a fundamental shift occurring in consumer behaviour, from conspicuous consumption to conscious consumption.
Tapping into change
Safe and clean access to water and sanitation is still not a right afforded to everyone, even in Australia.
Pacific Islands thinking SMART
ClimateWorks Australia has developed a tool to help Pacific Island countries design pathways for the future through sustainable, climate-resilient, net-zero-emissions development.
Drugs and bugs: what's lurking in our waterways
New research shows that medicines have found their way into Melbourne streams – and the creatures that live in them.
