Sebastien Darchen on GEMS panel discussing the 2032 Olympic Games in Brisbane

GEMS held its first industry event of the year, a panel discussion on the 2032 Brisbane Olympics! Members had the privilege of listening to an engaging and diverse panel including Council Member Jonathan Sri and UQ|UP’s Sebastien Darchen, who provided invaluable insight and greatly contributed to this challenging conversation.

The panel discussed topics like the plausibility and credibility of a “net-zero” ambition; importance of innovation and collaboration; the effect of under-saturation in the environmental industry; the Games influence on lower and middle class demographics and everything in between.
