Welcome to my new web site and blog – parnell.earth. This replaces my former sustainability consulting services site: greensynergy.com.au, which I have now closed down. This new site complements my new roles as Head of Circular Economy and Life Cycle Thinking at Edge Environment and Adjunct Research Fellow at the Centre for Urban Transitions at Swinburne University.
Parnell.earth is the place for my thought leadership in sustainability practice. My motivation is to provide support for sustainability practitioners through presentation of my ideas through my writing, webinars, presentations, keynotes, guest speaking and mentoring.
My scope for mentoring is limited at this stage – I am focussed on mentoring my team at Edge Environment as well as my former students in the Master of Design Strategy and Innovation at Swinburne University, Melbourne, Australia. I plan to extend mentoring to more practitioners in the next year.
The Thinking pages include some selected posts from greensynergy.com.au from 2012-2014. This post is the first in my new Blog where I present my thoughts and responses to contemporary events and issues in sustainability. I will also cross-post on my Linked In page.
I haven’t set up this site for comments and interaction, however my contact details are below. My LI site will have scope for comments and feedback, as will my twitter feed.
I hope you gain value from my ideas in helping you in your professional development to support the sustainability transition.
