What does the capstone project involve? Participants in the School of Climate change opt in to be placed in a group of 5 - 6 people and collaboratively pick an environmental problem and map the problems and solutions. The main objective is to take what they have learned from the School, build upon that knowledge and direct it towards a specific issue you find especially interesting.
How does the mentorship work? The groups with the best one-pagers will then be assigned a mentor to help them further develop their project into a presentation or poster. The mentor will walk through different perspectives and strategies for the groups projects. Then, the top 10 groups are selected to present their project in week 9 of the School (16th March). These presentations are then judged by a guest panel.
We were delighted for our panel to have been:
