In this episode of Entrepreneurs For Good, I speak with Chris Oestereich about his work in Bangkok teaching social entrepreneurship at Thammasat University while standing up his own social enterprises, Full Circle Filament and Circular Design Lab.
Lot’s of lessons in here about how to engage students on topics, and why we should be optimistic about the future!
About #EntrepreneursForGood Series:
Through this series, we speak with Asia based entrepreneurs whose mission it is to bring solutions to the environmental, social, and economic challenges that are faced within the region to learn more about their vision, the opportunities they see, and challenges that they have had to overcome.
It is a series that we hope will not only engage and inspire you, but catalyze you and your organizations into action.
To identify a challenge that is tangible, and build a business model (profit or non) that brings a solution to the market.
Chris helps communities and organizations shift towards the circular economy. He’s also a writer, publisher, and the director of the ASEAN Social Innovation Review, the publishing unit at Thammasat University’s School of Global Studies where he lectures on topics related to sustainability, social innovation, social enterprise, and advocacy.
Driven by the belief that change begins with a single step, Richard Brubaker has spent the last 15 years in Asia working to engage, inspire, and equip those around him to take their first step.
Acting as a catalyst to driving sustainability, Brubaker works with government, corporate, academic and non-profit stakeholders to bring together knowledge, teams, and tools that develop and execute their business case for sustainability.
