Little big noise: Disruption from the middle of nowhere

Featuring Cate McQuillen

Creator of the Emmy-award winning TV show dirtgirlworld

It may seem odd to spend all your time with the smallest voices in our community to bring about big change. But to be honest, Cate McQuillen is a bit odd. She's helping a generation of planet-loving preschoolers to make fun out of climate change and all things sustainable. 

The creator of the multi award-winning dirtgirlworld, including the latest digital Emmy, Cate is disrupting the eco conversation in 128 countries across the globe – and all from a wifi challenged dot on the map in rural Australia. Proof positive that where you live has nothing to do with how much disruption you can cause.

DIW EventDisruptive Innovation Works is a series of presentations by unconventional thinkers making a practical difference in their chosen fields. At UON, disruptive innovation is our prevailing attitude. We know that a commitment to nurturing and celebrating unconventional thinking creates new approaches to teaching, learning and research.

The Disruptive Innovation Works series is a practical way to learn from and be inspired by world-class pioneers of our day.
