Climate Hack!

Over two packed, energetic, inspiring and fun filled days, Masters students from across the University competed in Climate Hack 2018, an inaugural event run by the Postgraduate Network with support from the Student Engagement Grants program. Teams developed proposals and ideas to contribute to sustainable Olympic village, based on a scenario where Melbourne had been asked to host the 2024 Games. The winning team impressed our judges with a pitch about modular buildings that had a second life as adaptable community infrastructure. With guest presentations from Dr Dominique Hes, Dr Adam Bumpus and Dr Adi Gupta as well as a judging panel drawing expertise from DELWP, MAP, CleanTek and the City of Melbourne, it was a highly informative couple of days. Thank you to all who participated!
