PRINTCast: The PRINT Podcast Studio is a curated collection of cutting-edge podcasts we love about design, creativity, branding, books, and further subjects afield. Soon, we’ll have a dedicated digital listening room. In the meantime, we present Seedpod from host Lee Rael—“a podcast dedicated to the people shaping our world through entrepreneurship, sustainability and design.”

The latest episode (No. 98): “Peter Schelstraete: We have all the solutions.”

Here’s more from Rael:

This weeks guest Peter Schelstraete is the co-founder and CEO of UBUNTOO, a technology startup whose mission is to accelerate scalable sustainability solutions and innovations by providing a digital platform for global visibility and collaboration. The Ubuntoo platform connects innovators and industry leaders to collaborate on solutions and technologies in support of the UN SDGs, starting with solutions to end plastic waste and pollution.

Previously, Peter was at the Coca-Cola Company for 19 years’ tenure, where he held a variety of high profile roles, including CMO for the Asia Pacific region.

Being a true world citizen, Peter has lived and worked in four continents. He has a Master’s degree in Commercial Engineering from the University of Leuven, Belgium, and also holds a Postgraduate Master’s degree in Business Management from the University of Montpellier in France.

I was inspired by Peter's positivity, enthusiasm and drive to effect real change in our world. He has a huge wealth of knowledge in many areas of the sustainability sector and I see his platform making a massive contribution towards shifting the world towards a more sustainable one.
