Project: MISSION FOR EARTH HABITATION
16-year-olds have only ever heard about earth in a dire situation. It’s left 76% of them wanting a degree that can improve the planet and our global society. The University of New South Wales launched Mission for Earth Habitation. A way for students to identify courses not around traditional academic categories, but global causes.
It launched at Open Day, attended by over 30,000 prospective students. An interactive exhibition analysed Earth as if it were a newly discovered planet and accurately stated the improvements required to make it optimal for the human race. Rather than choosing individual subjects, prospective students could then pick a cause that inspired them and discover the vast range of UNSW degrees that can help solve that global issue.
