Are you ready to make your mark as a sustainable change agent where you study? This is our chance to turn an environmental challenge into an environmental opportunity. We spend most of our time in school and university and there is no better way to start your sustainability journey than by creating an impact here. Collaborate with your mates on a project that upcycles – transforming waste into something new, purposeful and exciting. Enter your project into our “Closing the Loop’ competition for a chance to receive a microgrant that can scale it up to bigger and better impact! Three winners will be eligible for receiving this microgrant, chosen by an expert panel of judges including industry and environmental experts. The panel will be assessing project entries based on creativity, project impact, outcome, outreach and efficient use of resources.
