“I cannot believe all the amazing ideas that students have come up with this year – I truly believe that the students who enter our Big Ideas Competition will come up with an idea that will be the ‘game changer’ in sustainability. With so many bright young minds focussed on developing solutions for our planet, the future may well be bright. I cannot wait to hear the teams present at the University of Leeds in May and I hope many of our other teams continue to work on their Big Ideas outside the Competition.”
