Eco Minds Youth Forum
Posted in Seeking by Ferne Edwards on March 10th, 2009
Bayer Australia, in partnership with United Nations Environmental Program, is offering three Australian students the opportunity to represent Australia at an Asia Pacific forum on Sustainable Energy Systems: Challenges and Opportunities.
The successful students will win a week long all-expenses-paid trip to the Eco-Minds Youth Forum in New Zealand in May 2009 and will have the opportunity to be part of a high profile international team solving real world problems.
To apply, students have to be Australian citizens (or have permanent residency), be between the ages of 18-24 and complete an application form which includes an essay of 1000 words. Entrants must write a discussion essay on an energy supply system in Australia discussing two of the following aspects: environmental, social and/or economic. The essay needs to focus on how to match environmental aspirations against practical day-to-day needs and how to improve standards of living. The closing date for applications is Friday 27 March 2009.
