First shot fired from the ‘Lunch & Learn’ canon and we’re making a splash!

Lunch and Learn Humanitix Banner

Our first Lunch and learn is a design challenge inspired by Murdoch senior leadership’s commitment to ‘Race to Zero’, a United Nations initiative that encourages private and local entities to work towards the goal of carbon neutrality.

As a design challenge, the Murdoch community is tasked with a wicked question: Can we become the first carbon-neutral university in Western Australia?

Everyone is welcome regardless of their course of study, professional background or level of understanding and we will provide a step-by-step framework to tackle the issue – breaking down what, where, how and why carbon is emitted.

We have also assembled an all-female judging panel, aligning the timing of the event with the theme of International Women’s Day 2022: ‘Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow'. 

Don’t forget to bring your lunch, register attendance and follow social measures to keep your community safe.

(Note: Most of the sessions are recommended to be in-person. However, due to the uncertainty entailed with COVID-19 developments in WA, flexibility is key as we’re experimenting with hybrid and virtual delivery of the program).
