Calling all student innovators and scientists! We need your help to build our city’s sustainable future.

Green Heart Schools invites year 7 students to the Future BNE: Sustainable City Challenge on Wednesday 20 March 2019.

As part of World Science Festival Brisbane in March 2019, Brisbane City Council will host the Green Heart Schools Future BNE Challenge – an interactive, innovation-focused event imagining Brisbane as a city of the future. As part of this event, school teams will evaluate local and global challenges faced by cities and record a video pitch about their solution to make Brisbane the cleanest, greenest, most sustainable city in Australia.

The Future BNE Challenge is for Year 7 students and is linked to the Australian Curriculum and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. It will be held at Brisbane City Hall on Wednesday 20 March 2019. Participating schools will be invited to attend the official program welcome (including pre-event activities and guest speakers) at 8am. In 2019, the Future BNE learning challenge will run one session only between 8:30am-2pm.

All schools within Brisbane City Council boundaries and a limited number of schools in neighbouring local government areas are eligible to register for the Future BNE Challenge. Schools can nominate up to 30 Year 7 students to participate in the challenge. Students will compete in school teams of 10.

Event Cost: FREE event!
