YP Online Debate

The Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia's national Young Professionals (YPs) group invites you to join them on Wednesday, 17 November 2021 for an online debate.


Australia will transition to a circular economy in five years

All YPs - that is, if you’re 35 years old and younger, though the young at heart are welcome to attend too - are invited to join us at this free online event where two (2) teams will go head-to-head on whether a circular economy can be achieved in Australia in five (5) years. 

Moderated by WMRR CEO, Gayle Sloan, each team will have a total of six (6) minutes to present their arguments, three (3) minutes to cross examine their opponents, and three (3) minutes to make their final rebuttals. 

Attendees will then be asked to cast their votes on who they thought delivered the most convincing argument and who their favourite speaker of the evening was.
