REPUBLIC OF EVERYONE – MAKING DOING GOOD, GOOD FOR BUSINESS
Sustainability needs creativity. Ben is making it his life’s work to bring the two together through strategy, ideas and a little bit of adventurous spirit.
Ben is founder of sustainability agency Republic of Everyone, co-Founder of the multi-award winning Garage Sale Trail and author of Lessons from My Left Testicle, a book about kicking cancer’s butt and learning to live.
As the architect of big impact, shared value ideas, he is chief architect of the The 202020 Vision, a movement to create 20% more green spaces in our cities by 2020, Sydney Water’s Beat the Bottle, a collective impact approach to cleaning up our rivers and waterways and Vote Climate for Ben & Jerry’s, a simple idea that rewards young people for enrolling to vote – then point climate, with a scoop of the finest.
Ben is a spokesperson for the Cancer Council, and a Director of the Future Business Councils, Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute and EdConnect.
In his spare time he surfs, plays guitar and dreams of life in a Kombi.
