Case studies

The UTS Rapido Social team are on a mission to reduce the world’s plastic waste problem, all while lending a helping hand (literally) to kids in need.

Australia has a waste problem which cannot be solved by recycling, but there is limited understanding of how best to focus attention on alternatives like repair and reuse, and to change attitudes and behaviours.

Nicole Sutton and her team adapted the Giving Games – originally developed as philanthropic education tool by not-for-profit The Life You Can Save – to the university classroom. The activity challenges students to think about decision bias and how it plays out in the real world.

A strong trusting relationship was built between DIRC and the Board of Nelly’s. Out of this, a service model was co-developed that utilised the strengths and experience of everyone involved.
