Uni students urged to share eco ideas Share on Facebook
Australian university students with ideas about sustainable energy solutions are being urged to share their earth-saving suggestions with the United Nations.

by fairfax - Sunday, 12 October 2008

The students with the best plans to tackle climate change will represent Australia at next year's Bayer Eco-Minds Forum in Auckland, New Zealand.

The bi-annual forum, supported by the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP), aims to boost environment awareness among students in the Asia-Pacific region.

Leading Australian environmentalist Jon Dee believes the Eco-Minds Forum is an ideal opportunity for students to present their ideas.

"What better way for young Aussie students to get their suggestions for sustainable energy solutions out there," Mr Dee said in a statement.

"Eco-Minds provides the perfect forum for tomorrow's leaders to exchange ideas with each other in a proactive, pan-Asia effort to make a very real difference to the future of our environment, today."

The forum is open to university students aged 18-24 years. Entry details and application forms are available from or (02) 4736 0892.

Entries close on March 28, 2009.
