To speculate on the future, the ever-growing levels of waste impacting our human lives can be cause for concern and action, but also, opportunities for new inventions and ways of living. In this discussion about the methods we are taking in designing our future lives, Science Gallery Melbourne has assembled a thinktank of scientists, artists, designers, researchers and more to theorise about the positive action one can enable (and the hard work it’s going to take to get us there).
