PlanetFix: Climate Change Solutions – Student Competition

We’re calling on SA students to find climate change solutions.

In partnership with The Advertiser, the Environment Institute has launched PlanetFix, an exciting competition for high school students in years 8-12.

Entry Dates: Saturday 19th October 2019 – Monday 17th November 2019
Entry form: Student entry form
Required: In 50 words or less, what is your best solution to climate change?

Released in Saturday’s edition of The Advertiser, the competition encourages students to think about the best ways to solve one of the most pressing issues of their time.

As leaders of tomorrow, we are looking for imaginative solutions. Ideas may come in many forms, such as changing lifestyle, encouraging action in community and government, high tech devices or nature-based solutions. However, we want to hear from you.

What do you think would be the best idea to solve climate change? Tell us in 50 words or less. Entry is free.

The Environment Institute will help students to expand their idea and then with assistance of journalists at The Advertiser, it will be developed into a solution for society and published. The process of developing this article will be an amazing experience for students. Find out more details about the process.
