The Resource Economy
Since stepping back from Power of Youth in 2015 I’ve worked as a consultant and business manager with organisations looking to incorporate responsible innovation into their culture, operations and services. I’m interested in how business design can be used to create resilience and regeneration in a rapidly changing economy.
One of my current areas of focus is the relationship between digital product design and closed systems of resource management. Previous projects include:
- Setting up the largest end-to-end garden waste collection service in the Scottish Borders
- Implementing the digital strategy for Scotland’s largest organics recycling firm
- Running a virtual hack with service design agency Snook looking at the sharing economy and regenerative cities as part of the Disruptive Innovation Festival.
