Alex works as a mechanical engineer at Dyson. He contributes to the companies outreach activities intended to engage people in engineering problems and solutions – often with a particular focus on sustainability contexts.
In this video, he poses you a challenge to innovate to reduce plastic pollution. He recognises that this is a huge issue, suggesting that you find a niche within the topic (examples he cites include circular economies, source pollution, ocean plastics – but feel free to focus on anything that interests you). We would encourage you to think from a local perspective in relation to plastic pollution and its production related to Greater Manchester.
