What if you were told that in the very near future, algae - a tiny aquatic plant - could become a major source of products such as pharmaceuticals, fuel, and even fashion? Well, that future might be closer than you think.

Presented by the Deep Green Biotech Hub and the University of Technology Sydney, “Algae is the new black” brings together experts, innovators, and inventors to talk and share their passion for algae, sustainability and biotechnology. Hosted by Triple J journalist Brooke Boney, join us for a lively panel discussion with climate change scientist and algae innovator Professor Peter Ralph, pioneer of sustainable fashion Dr Mark Liu, algae biotechnologist and freshwater scientist Dr Donna Sutherland, inventor and business consultant Nick Hazell, and co-founder of Sydney brewery Young Henry’s, Richard Adamson. Be inspired as they paint their vision for a sustainable future, and discover what innovative ideas and possibilities are out there for this amazing and diverse living resource.
