One aim of the Energy Breakthrough program is to encourage participants to examine and use the latest technology while considering its impact on the environment and the way people live locally and globally. The ABC's War on Waste offers a great vehicle for kids and adults alike - in schools, homes and businesses - to do just that. Will you join the War On Waste? Have you already joined? What is your school doing to be sustainable? Let us know in the comments or online on our Facebook page >

This week, the United Nations has been meeting in New York for its Climate Summit, enlisting the world to work together on a problem that’s too big for any one country to solve. We think this talk by Nicholas Stern is recommended watching for secondary students of the RACV Energy Breakthrough on the current state of the climate and what we might do about it. (It might help to prepare them for the Display & Presentation component too).
