Live on Fridays, free and exclusively for schools, the Powerhouse presents a series of conversations with the innovators leading Australia’s response to climate change. Teachers and young people will be inspired and encouraged to think, puzzle and explore the projects of change-makers in the fields of marine ecology, landscape architecture, environmental engineering and climate law, among many other critical sectors involved in the climate challenge.
