About Us

The Breaking Silos Collective is an initiative to highlight the importance of breaking silos across geographical, sectoral and cultural lines. Through a series of Youtube videos on the 'why' and 'how to' break silos, the BSC team shares tips and speaks to a range of individuals that have walked the talk in breaking silos.  We also comment on topical contemporary issues.
