Are you an environmental game-changer? WWF-New Zealand wants you

170928 Bright ideas for nature

Are you an inventor, an innovator, a creator? Could $25,000 help turn your idea into reality?

WWF-New Zealand, with supporters The Tindall Foundation, Department of Conservation, Callaghan Innovation and Bioheritage Heritage National Science Challenge, is on the search—from research labs to garden sheds and everywhere in between—for new ideas that could positively impact the environment.

Open from 25 September to 15 October, WWF-New Zealand’s Conservation Innovation Awards seek out and reward innovative game-changers for conservation. To find out how to submit an idea visit www.wwf.org.nz/innovation. A prize package of $25,000 will be awarded to each of the three winners.

This November, the SingularityU New Zealand chapter is hosting a SingularityU New Zealand Summit in Christchurch, focused on exponentially accelerating technologies and their impact on humanity. Lots of people ask what the heck is meant by “exponentially accelerating technologies.” So SingularityU made a comic.

Did you get a chance to meet Singularity University’s New Zealand Ambassador Kaila Corbin at last week’s UC Connect lecture? Don’t miss the summit!
