48-Hour Health Challenge

The 48-Hour Health Challenge is a perfect opportunity to engage with some of the big problems facing the Health Sector in Canterbury and New Zealand and take home part of a $3,000 cash prize pool!

Over the weekend you will work in teams tackling one of the Challenges set by the Health Precinct Advisory Council. You will discuss and test your concept with experts from the health sector and mentors from the business community.

At the end of the weekend each team will pitch to a panel of judges with the top three teams taking home cash prizes!

Ideas developed and pitched during the weekend may be taken up by the Health Precinct and implemented – if this happens participants will have the opportunity to continue to be involved.

Apply now for the Inspiring Explorers’ Expedition 2018

Just launched, the Antarctic Heritage Trust’s Inspiring Explorers Expedition for 2018.

Inspiring Explorers is a programme that seeks to connect young people with the spirit of exploration and gives them a platform to share their stories and inspire others.

Applications are now open for the Inspiring Explorers’ Expedition for 2018!

The expedition will attempt a 560km crossing on skis of the Greenland ice cap.

We are looking for three young New Zealanders or Australians (20-35 years) to participate.

The expedition honours Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, who made the first successful crossing of the Greenland ice cap in 1888. Nansen is regarded as an icon of polar exploration and his innovations and expeditions inspired explorers of the Antarctic heroic-era, including Scott, Shackleton and Amundsen.

We are looking for young people with an adventurous spirit, resilience and endurance to be a part of this special team. Applicants do not need to be seasoned polar explorers.

Applications close Sunday 19 November.
