Top twelve finalists visit University of Adelaide for Planetfix Competition

Over summer, a group of climate action-orientated year 8 to 12  students participated in a writing workshop held at the University of Adelaide.

The school-aged students attended the University to learn about the research our Environment Institute members are undertaking.

Students entered the competition answering “In 50 words or less, what your best solution to climate change?”. With guidance from University staff and in-depth understanding, students had the opportunity to increase their original answer to 250 words.
