KeepCup: Can we buy our way to a better future?

Friday 24 May, 7.30am - 9am


Join KeepCup to explore the role of brands and business in driving positive social and environmental change. Is it possible? How?

From consumption and materialism to movement-building, consider the connection between doing business and doing better at this panel event at the Hub. If we can’t buy our way to less impact, let’s think about the role of businesses in driving change, the impact they can have on the world around us and how can we all be more effective in creating change. Is it possible for brands selling products to genuinely play a role in reducing consumption?

Hosted by KeepCup, this panel will feature brands focused on changing consumer habits and the ethical supply chain. Featuring LUSH, Today, Dr Simon Lockery (RMIT), David Jones and the Country Road Group.
