About this podcast 

In this podcast we look at how the Design Thinkers Academy London used a Design Sprint to help SAP initiate an idea that has led to real world solutions in tackling the scourge of plastics pollution. 

The podcast involves a conversation between Stephen Jamieson, Global Head of Circular Economy Solutions at SAP, Design Thinkers Academy London Founder, David Kester and environmental consultant and former BBC journalist Daniel Boettcher. In it you can learn all about the Sprint itself, the impact of Design Thinking and data on climate issues, and SAP's exciting new venture: SAP Responsible Design and Production.
