Study Australia Masterclass Series in partnership with THE (Times Higher Education)

The Study Australia Masterclass Series brings together some of Australia’s most renowned academics. Join us as they shine a light on the global issues defining our future.

Circularity in the Built Environment

Introduced in January 2016, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a global framework for striving towards sustainable outcomes. SDGs directly relating to the built environment are:

-SDG 11 focusing on sustainable cities and communities

-SDG 9 on resilient infrastructure, and

-SDG 12 on responsible consumption and production.

Other relevant SDGs include SDG 7 on Energy and SDG 6 on Water. The SDGs do not explicitly mention circular thinking or practices for the built environment. Yet, the principles underpinning sustainability and circularity are the same, especially those focusing on resource efficiency and conservation.
Join Professor Iyer-Raniga to examine examples of circularity and efficiency in the built environment at the global, regional and local level (Melbourne, Australia), in order to better understand how circularity can support a better-developed world.
