Students win climate change trip



Students win climate change trip
A group of students are preparing for a once-in-a-lifetime journey to the South Pole to see the effects of climate change for themselves.

Four pupils from the University of Bristol will be making the trip with British explorer Robert Swan and his team from 2041 after being crowned winners of the npower Future Leaders Challenge.

Universities from across the country took part in the competition, which saw each competing team run a local green project around either their university or local community.

The Bristol team scooped first place for their initiative, entitled Turn Off Bristol, which involved the launch of eco-friendly buses around their university campus to encourage students to consider their transport carbon footprint.

"Loads of students drive into Bristol every day and we wanted to do something to change this behaviour and get people to make personal pledges," said Tom Bowcock, from the Bristol team.

"We hope that our project will now mean students think twice before jumping in the car. We're over the moon to have won the competition and I can't believe we're all going to go to Antarctica in March."
