It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Adelaide Sustainability Association! As a new student-driven, multidisciplinary University club, I believe the ASA will provide a catalyst for the ‘leaders of tomorrow’ to mature and flourish in response to the challenges of the coming decades.
Our mission is advanced by harnessing interdisciplinary collaboration and intergenerational exchange to achieve real life sustainability goals. Empowering young and passionate students to work towards sustainability objectives will stimulate their implementation of such agendas throughout their careers, which I trust will prove valuable.
Mentored by patron The Hon. Robert Hill, former University of Adelaide Chancellor and Australian Senator, the ASA will work with industry and government to provide its members with invaluable knowledge and experience.
I sincerely commend the opportunity to become involved with the Adelaide Sustainability Association and share in its work alongside a group who – through optimism – are not overwhelmed by the challenges we face, but are inspired by the opportunities they present.
