Presented by NGV and Sustainability Victoria

From regenerative practice and design for dismantling, to cutting-edge data systems that track and trace materials and products, this session explores the possibilities and practicalities of integrating circular design principles into a range of construction and demolition projects. Moderator Caroline Pidcock introduces audiences to circularity in the built environment from a whole-of-systems approach to scalable, local projects and prototypes. An expert panel of industry leaders share how they are implementing these solutions here and now.
