How One Startup Is Making Surfing Sustainable
Perhaps not an environmental pollutant that we are used to seeing dealt with, but according to a study, carried out at the University of California Berkeley, the average surfboard creates 375 pounds of CO2 emissions. Another great startup initiative from the HATCH Taronga Accelerator Program 2021, Sine Surf is tackling this environmental issue with their ingenious timber surfboards. Their innovative design and production, using timber and their nanosilica bio-epoxy composite, mean that their surfboards are one of the most sustainable manufactured surfboards on the planet. Read more about the startup here: https://sinesurf.com/

Deborah Kelly: The Gods of Tiny Things
Born 1962, Wurundjeri/Boon Wurrung Country, Narrm. Lives and works between Gadigal Country, Sydney and Jerrinja Country, Currarong, NSW. Her practice encompasses collage, installation, event and performance. Projects are often collaborative and concerned with lineages of representation, politics and history. Some projects originate as political practices, others are picked up by cultural institutions. “Climate catastrophe is upon us. And yet, here we are, so far down the wrong road. Trumpeting a gas-led recovery. Watching wildlife disappear, forever. Still stealing stolen lands. Letting liars lie. Is it possible to imagine a way away from this precipice” Deborah Kelly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMWhH75IFMY&t=4s
