In episode three I speak with Senior Research Fellow in the School of Engineering and Architecture at the University of Cork – Dr. Niall Dunphy
In addition to his work in UCC, Niall also serves as the Director of the Cleaner Production Promotion Unit, which is a multidisciplinary research group working on sustainability. Niall delivers his insight on people’s consumption behaviour which has skyrocketed. More food, wasted water, fast fashion, expedited travel which has drastically impacted our environment.
Niall talks me through my work as a policymaker in the European Parliament and the need to be braver, serving with urgency. This conversation comes as a timely manner as we watch world leaders meet in Dubai at COP28. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
