Darren is community leader with a strong passion for out-of-the-box thinking, innovation, leadership and has a track record of making a real difference in the world through social enterprise across a number of sectors including disability, environment, entrepreneurship, small business and education. Darren’s social enterprise is setting up WA’s very first PET plastic reprocessing facility called GREEN BATCH, recovering waste PET and turning it into 3D printer filament enabling any school with a 3D printer to become a micro-recycling plant themselves. Proceeds from the sale of the recycled filament will be reinvested back into programs which educate the community on how to reduce their personal impact on the environment. For his dedication and passion towards supporting the community we all live in, Darren has won a whole swag of awards including WA Young Australian of the Year, WA Citizen of the Year, and recently was named by the United Nation’s JCI as one of the Top 10 Most Outstanding Young People of the World.
