Recognising student innovation
Climate change is the biggest threat to our future and poses a huge challenge for London. That's why we must act now to reduce our emissions and adapt to the changes climate change will bring.
The 2013 Mayor's Low Carbon Prize, in partnership with Siemens, is looking for innovative ideas from London's students to help us slash London's CO2 emissions by 60 per cent by 2025.
Enter and you could win a share of the £20k development fund to help you realise your carbon saving idea. If shortlisted, you'll also be considered by Siemens for a paid internship opportunity, which will boost your career and give you valuable industry experience.
Follow us on Twitter at #MLCPrize to find out when the next Low Carbon roadshow is and meet our ambassadors; you can also find out more about the Mayor's Low Carbon Prize competion at the roadshow.
