Young minds offer sustainable solutions

Duncan Burck creator and Program Director, Sustainnovation Challenge

This week we launch City of Newcastle Sustainnovation Challenge; a first-of-its-kind collaborative learning experience for secondary students to help create a sustainable future for Newcastle.

It’s a unique collaboration between education, industry, community, and city leaders who are volunteering their expertise to help students create and develop workable solutions to important issues including social inclusion and improving accessibility, dealing with plastic, planning for an ageing community, and preparing for a creative economy.

Here are my thoughts in today’s Newcastle Herald.
