#231 Changemakers with Dr. Leyla Acaroglu: Sustainability

In this special episode of the Squiggly Careers x Changemakers podcast Sarah talks to Dr. Leyla Acaroglu a sustainability provocateur and cultural protagonist. Leyla challenges people to think differently about how the world works and is the founder of Disrupt Design, the Unschool and the CO Project Farm. Her TED talk 'Paper beats plastic? How to rethink environmental folklore' has been viewed over a million times (and if you're a tea drinker like Sarah it will challenge your 'pop the kettle on' habit!)

Leyla talks to Sarah about her own squiggly career and how her different interests collided to lead her to focus her skills and passion on creating in sustainability. She shares how we can all challenge ourselves to think differently about the actions we take and the positive change we can create as a result. Leyla also talks about the role models that inspire and motivate her and her hopes for the future.
