Episode 3

Team Blend ESQ

Season 1- Episode 3

Robyn Johnson & Catherine Wade.

Blend ESQ Director Robyn Johnson and Operations Manager Catherine Wade discuss mission, sustainability and an actionable agenda to drive global and local change.

With decades of industry, environmental management and ESQ experience between them this salty conversation covers a range of topics and ideas, including why they each pivoted their careers and personal lives to the mission of driving sustainable change in the Wollongong area and how highlighting the work of other passionate advocates and change makers, whilst making small incremental changes at home, can make all the difference to the future of our planet.

We can showcase to the world how we can transform an industrial centre into a clean energy precinct and a sustainable city. We have the ability to address our water issues and enhance local flora and fauna, and it’s not binary. We can have a thriving industry and address social inequities whilst protecting our natural environment… I want to motivate people to take those actions. Robyn Johnson Director Blend ESQ
