2019 Future BNE Challenge - World Science Festival Brisbane

As part of World Science Festival Brisbane, Brisbane City Council hosted the Green Heart Schools Future BNE Challenge - an interactive, innovation-focused event imagining Brisbane as a city of the future. As part of this event, school teams evaluated local and global challenges faced by cities and recorded a video pitch about their solution to make Brisbane the cleanest, greenest, most sustainable city in Australia.

The Future BNE Challenge is designed for Year 7 students and is linked to the Australian Curriculum and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. It was held at Brisbane City Hall on Wednesday 20 March 2019.
