Re: Purpose for Good

Sara is the Co-founder of Re:Purpose for Good which just won the people’s choice award at Pitch@Palace – an initiative by The Duke of York. This initiative is currently repurposing plastic and e-waste to make robotic prosthetics and working to change the perception of the value of waste.

She is also the Co-founder of F*ckgiving – a contagious movement designed to unlock human potential, and the Program Manager at The Centre for Sustainability Leadership training up the next batch of Future Makers.

Sara is an igniter of big ideas and a systems thinker, specialising in bringing the right legends together to get sh*t done. She is formerly trained as both a Biomedical Scientist & Environmental Engineer – which essentially makes her a designer, who sees the planet as one big outdoor laboratory. Overall she is a passionate connector, putting purpose and positive impact at the core of everything she does.

In a previous life, she was the Education For Sustainability Manager at Macquarie University, TEDx Speaker, Co-host for the Un-school of Disruptive Design and Associate Editor of the International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education.
