2 Countries, 1 Future

An international panel discussion to celebrate World Environment Day

 

All over the world we face a big challenge to power our planet. We all need to think about the ways and types of energy that we use now and in the future.

 

Kids can play a vital role in moving to a clean energy future. Some of the world's most incredible inventions were created by kids! Philo Farnsworth was 14 when he first came up with the idea of a working television in 1920. His invention went on to change the world.

 

About

In celebration of World Environment Day, Green Cross Australia, Questacon and Polycom invite primary school kids from across Australia and the US to participate in the Future Sparks panel discussion 'Future Sparks: 2 Countries, 1 Future powered by clean energy'.

 

The panel will address the following topics:

1. Our great big challenge - more people, less resources
2. Destination clean and green - what would a clean energy future look like?
3. Ideas and innovations to get us there

 

A panel of experts live from Questacon will discuss the topics with three Australian and one American schools via Polycom's videoconferencing network. The discussion will be streamed live online and viewers can join the discussion on Twitter (#futuresparks). You can also email questions and comments before the event.
