Podiatry and sustainability

This video (below) features Hub Leader Prof Veena at the Australian Podiatry Conference 2021 talking about innovations and practices to help the industry achieve its goals around sustainability, recycling and developing a circular economy.

The event brought together world-leading presenters from all over the globe in a virtual event with the overarching focus of “Innovation through Collaboration”.

Veena also discussed a possible Hub project between involving the Australian Podiatry Association (ApodA) to find a way to recycle and reform the materials from used orthotics into materials and products for new uses.

The video also features the APodA Sustainability Panel from the conference, chaired by ApodA Board member Dr Angela Evans AM, talking with Veena and others about recycling, waste reduction, reuse, repurposing, ethical manufacturing, fair trade and other aspects that promote a circular, sustainable economy.
